In addition to our standard season we organise a number of optional extra events
and performing opportunities (some of which incur an additional charge)
including an annual day-long orchestral workshop, a programme of summer chamber
music playing, chamber music workshop days, performing at local events such as
Buxton Fringe Festival.
We have after-rehearsal pub gatherings each week; an orchestral Christmas meal
out; and an after-AGM summer drinks and nibbles social.
DO YOU NEED ME?
As with many amateur music societies applications to join are especially welcome
from male voices and brass/percussion/string players. However, if you are
interested and don't fit one of those categories please do still contact us!
We are particularly interested to hear from wind, brass and percussion players
who would be interested in joining our Concert Band.
