Following the success of our 2023 event, we're thrilled to bring you another orchestral Play Day - a great chance for local musicians to meet, rehearse and perform some of the most recognisable and enjoyable short pieces in orchestral repertoire.

Rehearsals start at 12.30pm for players; we'll work through each piece in short sessions throughout the afternoon and end the day by running through the programme to see what we have achieved!

Light refreshments will be provided throughout the afternoon.

This programme of music is accessible to most instruments and is suitable for those players who are approximately Grade 5 standard or above, or have previous orchestral experience at that level.

An electronic download of the sheet music will be made available shortly after registration for players to practise in advance. 

Please also bring a music stand.

Approximate timings as follows:

12:00 Arrive, register and set up

12:30 Rehearse piece 1

13:40 Short break

13:50 Rehearse piece 2

15:00 Break for refreshments

15:30 Rehearse piece 3

16:40 Short break

16:50 Rehearse piece 4

18:00 End of Play Day

Cost for the day: £12 payable upon registration
