What sort of time commitment is involved?

We meet on Thursday evenings, from 8.00 – 10.00 pm, fortnightly during term time (all the dates are in the calendar). In addition we would obviously ask each player to put in a reasonable amount of individual practice time between rehearsals, to master the notes and rhythms so that when we meet, we are able to focus on playing together rather than learning our notes.

As each term’s activities lead towards a concert, it is important that members attend regularly so that everyone is up to speed by the time of the concert. If you get busy and have to miss more than one rehearsal in a term, we’d just ask you to check with the Musical Director that it is still OK for you to play in the concert.
