Daytime Orchestras

If you play an orchestral instrument to Grade 2 or above, then why not come along and play with one of our Daytime Orchestras based in Loughborough and Nottingham!

These two orchestras, designed for adult instrumentalists who have recently picked up an instrument or have rediscovered a love of playing, rehearse 3 terms per year. Autumn (Sept – Nov), Spring (Jan – March) and Summer (April – June) with 10 rehearsals per term. A wide ranging repertoire has been chosen for the orchestra with something for everyone, from classics to film music!

Contact us to arrange a free taster session to see if it’s right for you! Email the office on or give us a ring on 0115 958 9312 with your name, instrument and which group you would like to join.
