Summer Concert July 2022

New term starts Sept 21st 2021. 7.30 pm  Bishop Monkton Village Hall

It was great to see so many people at our socially disctanced BBQ in July, we were even blessed with some sunshine.

Welcoming all existing players back in September and any new players will of course be very welcome. Look out your instruments folks!


As another exciting year draws to a close the orchestra continues to evolve.
The string section is still looking for new players but is developing a wonderful sound and tightness.

The brass section has blossomed and boasts 3 trombones, 3 french horns however new trumpet players would be welcome as our previous trumpet player has gone to oxford university.

The orchestra prides itself on its welcome and care of newcomers so just check the ‘Rehearsal Dates’ page.

It is helpful to email our friendly chairman Simon at and let me know so I can he looking out for you and that we have adequate provision of music parts etc.

You can be assured of a very warm welcome.

Update Nov 2020: As we are not currently rehearsing, if there are any potential new members out there reading this, please do drop our friendly chairman Simon an email and we will keep in touch with our plans for 2021.

April 2021 Update..

We are hoping in line with Government guidelines &  Covid relaxation rules permitting,  that from June 2021 we may be able to restart and have a couple of informal rehearsals and a summer social. We will update here with dates once these are confirmed. Looking forward to seeing everyone again soon. Dust down those instruments folks!
