The orchestra has about 40 members, mostly in the Grade 6 - 8 range. Many of them have picked up again instruments that they played earlier in life; others have taken up their instruments more recently. We also have several music teachers in the orchestra, along with a few who have been professional performers, though not necessarily on the instruments they play here.
We rehearse at Kingston United Reformed Church, in Eden Street, Kingston, KT1 1HZ, on Wednesday mornings from 10.15 until 12.30, in three ten week terms.
