REHEARSALS & REPERTOIRE DAYS
The orchestra does not meet weekly but there are four rehearsals before each concert, usually on a Thursday or Friday evening in the 3 weeks before a concert and in the afternoon on the day of the concert.
We also hold an annual “Repertoire Day” when we try out pieces we might not get to play in concert, either because they’re too simple (but fun!) or would prove too challenging to perform in public. Non-members are welcome to participate. This usually involves a morning’s playing followed by an optional lunch at a local pub or restaurant before continuing to play in the afternoon.
During the 2020-2021 season, we were unable to perform our summer and autumn concerts as planned due to the Covid pandemic, however in between lockdowns we held several very pleasant half day repertoire events when members got together in a socially distanced manner to play music from our own library.
We were pleased to be able to perform a socially distanced concert on 10th July 2021 and are now preparing for our next concert on Sunday 17th October 2021 in the Battle of Britain Bunker Visitor Centre in Uxbridge.
