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.

Great rehearsal on Tuesday night (and it was warm!). Bernard Docherty was very impressed with the strings, commenting on the high standard of playing, focus, and quickness of update. Good stuff! This Tuesday is a full rehearsal again, when we will be covering all the pieces for our concert. Paper tickets will also be distributed to everyone, so get selling!

Spring Concert

Date : Saturday 9 March 2024 at 7.30pm Venue : Sherbrooke Mosspark Church, Glasgow Conductor - Robert Baxter Leader - Hazel McDonald Mozart - Symphony No 35 in D major ‘Haffner’ Copland - Quiet City for trumpet, cor anglais and strings Soloists - Megan Bousfield & Wendy Dougan Bizet - Symphony in C major
Our next concert features two very contrasting symphonies - one from the Classical period written by Mozart at the height of his powers, and one from the later Romantic period, written by Georges Bizet at the very start of his musical career. Both are masterpieces in their own way and are regularly played in the mainstream classical repertoire. These two symphonies bookend a Quiet City, by the American composer, Aaron Copland, scored for solo trumpet, cor anglais and strings. Online booking for this concert is now open! Click on the Trybooking button below to go to our online ticketing agent to book your tickets. Tickets will also be available soon from our members. Ticket Prices are Adults £15 Concessions £10 Children under 12 £5
