Virtual Rehearsal

Christmas Update!

Our Virtual Rehearsals, held over Zoom, have been a great success, and thanks must go to our conductor Robert Baxter for his enthusiastic and insightful leadership. To round off the session, we now propose to hold an informal Virtual Concert on Tuesday 8 December! The idea is, roughly, that the first half will comprise solo performances by members, while the second half will be given over to a performance of Beethoven’s 1st Symphony. This latter will be led by Robert, with members playing their individual parts along with a recording of the symphony which Robert will chose and broadcast. The evening will kick off at 7.30pm, and details of the Zoom login will be sent out beforehand. Details of pieces that members would like to play should be emailed to Wendy so that a programme can be put together.

You can find out lots more about the orchestra and its music in the pages of this web-site. Hopefully, you will be encouraged to come along to a concert, or if you are a musician, you may be interested in joining us. We invite you to browse through the site, and if you need more information, there is a Contacts Page so that you can get in touch.
The GCO is always on the look-out for new players. Details on vacancies and how to join the orchestra can be found by clicking the link below.
Did you know that you could become a Sponsor of the GCO ? Both Individual and Business sponsorship opportunities exist to support your orchestra. Click on the button below to learn all about our new Sponsorship Schemes!
With our Christmas concerts cancelled, and our Spring concert very much in the balance, the Committee is busy planning ahead for a programme of rehearsals to start in the new year. We will commence with zoom rehearsals led by Robert Baxter, on the same basis as this session, with the first of these being on Tuesday 12 January. Details of which orchestra sections are involved each night, and the programme to be played, will be issued in due course.

Christmas & New Year

Greetings from the GCO

The GCO extends its very best Christmas and New Year wishes to all its members friends and supporters. Sadly, the festive season will surely feel bitter sweet this year, with the absence of so much wonderful live music making, concerts and carol singing. Hopefully, however, with new vacccines on the horizon, we can look forward with great anticipation to the return of concerts, perhaps in the spring, but surely by the summer. Until then, keep safe, keep your spirits up and to our members - keep practising!
