Players

We are a friendly, enthusiastic orchestra who enjoy performing three concerts per year and are always on the lookout for enthusiastic musicians. We aim to feature local and young 'up-and-coming' soloists of high quality and perform a range of music in Braintree. Rehearsals in consist of two Sundays (10:00am - 2:30pm) prior to each concert. If you are interested in joining us please email us.
