We are an enthusiastic and welcoming group of amateur musicians who get together on Saturday mornings to play music in a fun and friendly environment.
Rehearsals are held in Great Barrow Village Hall, near Chester and we welcome players of any instrument, of any age and with any level of experience.
We are an "open admission" orchestra - which means that there is no audition and no-one is ever turned away.
We currently have 3 separate orchestras; Introductory, Intermediate and the "Main" Orchestra, so we are sure there will be an orchestra suitable to your current level of playing.
We usually perform 2 concerts per year; one at Christmas and another prior to the summer break. We occasionally receive other invitations to perform such as at charity events and at Chester Music Society Club Evenings.

The orchestra has an insurance policy which includes Public Liability cover, but it does not cover members' instruments, so members are advised to insure their instruments themselves.
