One Day Scratch Orchestra 2017
This is a fun event for amateur musicians. We simply aim to play the music as well as we can - with virtually no rehearsal! It will be a thoroughly enjoyable day entertaining the audience, and raising a lot of money for Cancer Research UK.
There are no auditions! We need players on any orchestral instrument (plus saxophones) - you will need to be at around Grade 5/6 or higher.
The sound created by 50 violins, 30 cellos, 8 trombones, 15 trumpets has to be heard. Now add 280 singers!
We also need an audience!
At the end of the afternoon we will perform the pieces in a Concert.This is a free event - but audience members will be encouraged to give generously to Cancer Research UK.
In our first seven Concerts we have raised over £44,000.
You do not need a ticket - just turn up on the day!
Auditorium doors open at 3.40 for a 4pm concert, but the Foyer and bars are open all day....
