There are no formal auditions: membership is subject to an initial trial period.
We have a relatively short run of rehearsals for concerts, so players need to be at least Grade 8 standard with good sight-reading skills. Orchestral experience is essential.
We rehearse on Wednesday evenings from 7.15pm - 9.45pm, in the wonderful surroundings of St Martin's Church between Kensal Rise and Kensal Green and have around 50 regular members. We are a friendly and sociable orchestra, but we do expect players to commit themselves to regular attendance throughout the term and undertake private practice. While many members live in North West London, others travel some distance to be part of the orchestra.
