Are you interested in joining a group of musicians who meet once a fortnight in Barrow?
The orchestra meets fortnightly at Barrow Village Hall, near Chester, Cheshire. Rehearsals start at 7pm, under the baton of Andrew Edwards. We play symphonies by Mozart, Haydn, Beethoven, Schubert and Mendelssohn etc. which are suitable for the size of the orchestra.
Anyone who wants to have a go at this music is welcome, with the proviso that there is no doubling of woodwind or brass parts, so please contact us regarding vacancies in these instruments. At present we need a second bassoon. We currently need more string players, and in particular double bass players. Please bring your own refreshment for the short rehearsal break .
We ask members to please provide their own music which can easily be downloaded from IMSLP.
The current pieces are:
Haydn Symph. no.104 The London. Schubert Sympnony No 5. Elgar - Nursery Suite.
