Want to join one of our ensembles?

Our members are adult amateur woodwind players. Our two ensembles provide opportunities for us to develop our musical ability in relaxed settings. We are building a varied repertoire of woodwind ensemble music and we regularly perform in public. We do not audition but invite prospective members to a rehearsal so that they can try us out. Our popular sections are often full - if so, you can join the waiting list. Do get in touch.
