The standard l.jpg

The Standard

  • Anyone aged 7-18 who is learning to play an instrument and can read music is welcome - there are no auditions.

  • We currently have over 100 playing members, with a range of ability and experience.

  • All members play in the main orchestra and more senior players are invited to join the Youth Orchestra, which tackles more challenging music.


Which instruments l.jpg

Which Instruments

  • We welcome all the usual orchestral instruments plus some others and we don't limit how many players of each instrument can take part.

  • For the first steps we have a recorder section, which is perfect for new members who can start on the recorder and progress to other instruments as they learn.


The music we play l.jpg

The Music We Play

  • Director of Music Richard Bowyer selects a great mix of music covering lots of different styles: classical music, jazz, film and TV themes, arrangements of pop and folk as well as music written specially for the orchestra. There's something everyone will enjoy playing and chances for different sections of the orchestra to show off!

Where We Meet

  • Orchestra rehearsals are held most Saturdays in term time at the Bishop Blackall Annex, Pennsylvania Road, Exeter .

  • Main orchestra rehearsal is from 10am to 12pm

  • and the Youth Orchestra continues to 1pm.


Concerts l.jpg

Concerts

  • The Orchestra gives at least one public concert each term - including outdoor performances. Concerts are usually in the Exeter area. We often combine concerts with fun days out: for instance we regularly play at Crealy Leisure Park and in the summer, we play on Exeter Quay and on the outdoor bandstand in Connaught Gardens, Sidmouth. In 2007, we are going to play in Exeter University's Great Hall!

  • Membership costs £27 for each term (discounted to £17 for a second child in the same family, and to £12 for a third or subsequent child).

  • Membership for the full year costs £75 (discounted to £45 for a second child in the same family, and to £30 for a third or subsequent child).
