What, Where, When?  

We meet at St Albans Music School (based at Townsend School) weekly during term time. Once a month, we have sectional rehearsals, splitting into Wind and Strings and working with specialist instrumental tutors on technique.  Our leaders are experienced, professional orchestral musicians, able to give high-level tuition to players.
