Summer term under way
The Summer term started on Thursday the 25th April, 2013. Rehearsals are being held at our usual venue, the Dedworth Green Baptist Church at 7.00 p.m.
Full details, including all the term's dates, can be found on the Meeting dates page.
This term we're playing Einie Kliene by Mozart and 3 short pieces from the Water Music from Handel. But we've not gone all classical, and some Irish folk tunes, show music and a more modern piece are also being played this term.
We'd love you to come along and join this term, so why not dust off your flute, theorbo, mellotron, triangle or anything else that creates a sound (that isn't alive), and come along to try out the orchestra.
2013 Spring concert
The 2013 Spring Concert was held on the 21st March. The audience braved the cold and wind to hear the orchestra try to bring Spring in. The played a tribute to Les Misérables as well as various other classical and popular pieces. The concert also included various solo pieces from members of the orchestra.
The concert seemed to be well received, and many people stayed behind to enjoy the hospitality pies provided afterwards.
We would like to pass on our gratitude to Dedworth Green Baptist Church, who hosted us.
Spring concert raises £112 for House for Haiti project
Entrance to all our concerts is free, but we hold a voluntary collection which we give to charity. This year, the collect raised £112, which was given to the House for Haiti project run by the Dedworth Green Baptist Church and inspired by Christian Aid's work in Haiti to help the people affected by the earthquake in 2010.
