History of the WCO

The Windsor Community Orchestra started up in 2004. It has been doing 3 concerts a year since then. Each concert includes 6 or 7 orchestral pieces, and also features solos and smaller groups made up of members of the orchestra. These have been as diverse as a brass duet, an accordion solo and a jazz trio.

Joining the orchestra costs only £25 per term with reductions for additional family members.

News from the orchestra

Spring concert

Our 2016 Spring concert was held on Thursday 17rd March, 2016. We finally completed playing the challenging pieces by Rutter that had almost defeated us last year, and we raised quite a bit for charity whilst doing so. A great way to say goodbye to winter!
