A couple of years ago you posted a plea for string players to join Harmony Sinfonia (I joined Harmony as a result and it's given me many happy times)! We are still rather low on strings and are particularly desperate for violinists.
I'd really encourage anyone remotely interested in orchestral playing to give it a try: it's a really fun and friendly orchestra, very welcoming and forgiving but with some fantastically talented players making great music.
We rehearse on Wednesdays in Prendergast School on Hilly Fields, from 7.30 - 9.45pm (including a break for a cup of tea and a natter - retro biscuits provided!). I believe you can try it out for a couple of rehearsals before committing.
Our programme for this term is Bruckner's Symphony No. 4, Elgar's Serenade for Strings and Beethoven's Egmont Overture (concert on 1st December).
