Joining the orchestra

The orchestra is keen to recruit new members, and welcomes enquiries from string players of a standard approximately equivalent to around grade V - VI or above. There are no auditions!

We are a small, friendly group dedicated to playing good music of various styles and periods, frequently including more unusual works not normally tackled by larger orchestras. The orchestra has its own extensive library of music; the concerts page gives an indication of the repertoire.

Rehearsals are on Friday evenings in the centre of Newcastle-under-Lyme, normally from September until May.

If you are interested in playing with us, and can attend Friday evening rehearsals, please contact the chairman, Christopher Mason: phone 07719 487670 or email chairman@newcastlestrings.org.uk .
