Join the orchestra
The Leicester Symphony Orchestra is made up of about 80 musicians of all ages. New players of a good standard are invited to join where there is a vacancy. In particular we would be very interested to hear from violin and double bass players. Subscriptions cost £65 per year, or £50 for the unwaged. An extensive repertoire of 19th and 20th century symphonic music is performed.
Rehearsals usually take place at Mayflower Church Hall, Ethel Road, Leicester, LE5 5PH unless otherwise stated, and there are usually six leading up to a concert, on Sunday afternoons (2.15 to 5pm) and Monday evenings (7.30 to 10pm). Further details are available from Jenny Hand on 0116 210 9374.
