Welcome to the Salon Orchestra Website (last updated 26th September 2017) - We hope you will find what you are looking for.
THE SALON ORCHESTRA IS RE-FORMING UNDER THE LEADERSHIP OF OUR NEW CONDUCTOR PHIL DAVIES AND SUBSEQUENT TO THE RETIREMENT OF MERREN ANTHONY WHO INSPIRED US FOR NINE YEARS (See our history page).
NEW MEMBERS WILL BE VERY WELCOME AT ANY TIME.
Our 2017 - 2018 Season begins on Tuesday the 12th September 2017 and the term ends 5th December 2017. The next term will probably start on the 9th January.
IN OUR NEW FORM WE ARE VERY KEEN TO ATTRACT NEW MEMBERS - we welcome players of all instruments but to maintain a good musical balance we are also very keen to invite and encourage upper string players of Grade III and above.
If you have not played for some time, or, if you are looking for an opportunity to restart, or, if you are looking for a first orchestra experience...... we will make you very welcome.
If you are a Music Teacher with fledgling pupils getting ready to fly perhaps you could bring your pupil along and play alongside at least the first time .... and maybe more....... experienced players and teachers can be a great help to newcomers.
Membership is flexible and our membership costs are very modest at approximately £1.50 per evening. - players who come along to help their protogees are not expected to pay.
These photographs are of a rehearsal in a temporary venue ............ we will shortly replace these with up to date photographs.
Our aim is to play a variety of music that suit our players so we play popular classics, light concert, folk, and also modern pieces with interesting rhythms. If this sounds like something you could also enjoy then we would be very pleased if you contact us - clicking the email button generates an email to Geoff Simmons (Treasurer).
