Rehearsals are held weekly on Monday evenings at St Nicholas Church, Corfe Mullen, BH21 3LE. View Google Map. We start playing at 7.30 pm and normally finish at 9.30 pm, after which those members who so wish meet up at the Dorset Soldier pub for a drink and a chat.
We take a couple of weeks break at Christmas and Easter, and in the summer, but apart from bank holidays continue to play throughout the year otherwise.
Our repertoire is best described as ‘eclectic’. We play a variety of ‘classical’ and modern pieces, typically including an overture, or a movement from a concerto or symphony; a selection of music from a show or a film; and, various shorter pieces. Much of the music we play is in the form of arrangements for this type of orchestra, though by no means all. (The current music list can usually be seen on our Facebook page.)
