The South Cheshire Orchestra
Registered Charity Number 1002015
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. If you are a string, horn or trumpet player, local to the area (Cheshire/Staffordhire/Shropshire), and are interested in joining the Orchestra, please complete the contact form below, detailing your instrument and your musical experience.
