To join this group musicians need to know how to read music and be able to play in first position across all strings of their Violin, Viola, Cello or Double Bass. This is an ideal group for musicians returning to their instrument after having a break for a number of years, or players new to learning. Playing in an ensemble is the key to having a sense of purpose and feeling like doing practice is more worthwhile. This orchestra is ever evolving and all music now caters for woodwind, brass and percussion.
