We rehearse every Sunday, 11-2 in the Dennis Arnold Hall at the Music Faculty
What's the conductor like?

When do you perform?
We perform once a term, usually in 5th/6th week
Where can I buy tickets for the next concert?
Keep an eye on our socials!
We are a small, non-auditioned string orchestra that aims to tackle a wide variety of string
repertoire, both well known and more obscure. Our most recent concert included works by
Biber, Bruch and Mendelssohn, and have also previously played Dvorak, Mozart, Sibelius, Elgar
and Suk – among many, many others! We are a very friendly group and tend to play much
smaller concerts than the other ensembles, making it perfect for those who don’t want the
intensity of a full orchestra.
