Welcome to the new website for the South Cheshire Orchestra.

 

While it is under reconstruction please pay us return visits from time to time.

Look for details of the Orchestra’s forthcoming concerts on WhereCanWeGo.com

The South Cheshire Orchestra, founded in 1973, has been a major resource for non-professional (“amateur”) musicians from south Cheshire, north Staffordshire and north Shropshire, to come together to practice and perform music of several musical genres, from light “pops” to the more formal classical works by the famous composers of the 18th and 19th centuries.

The Orchestra’s members comprise a core group of people from a variety of backgrounds and of all ages.  Three times (minimum) a year, the Orchestra gives public concerts, which are warmly received by their audiences.  Many of these concerts are fund-raisers, not only for the Orchestra, but also for a number of local charities.

Membership is open to anyone who plays a musical instrument usually associated with the symphony orchestra.  Presently, there are no vacancies for wind players, but players are needed for all of the string sections, especially violins.

The Orchestra does not hold auditions, but players should be of a standard equivalent to the ABRSM grades 5 or 6.
