Rehearsals

Rehearsals are held every Tuesday evening during school term-time. We rehearse in the North Hall of Wymondham High School; the entrance is off Folly Road (click here for a map). Rehearsals start at 19:45 and finish at 21:45. We generally have ten evening rehearsals before each concert. We also have an afternoon rehearsal on the day of the concert.

Annual Open Rehearsal

Some years ago, for fun, we held an open rehearsal - anyone could come along and try out the experience of playing with a symphony orchestra. It was so successful, and so many people asked us to repeat the event, that we now hold it annually. The format is simple - one or two pieces are selected by our Musical Director, and these are given the full rehearsal treatment. The evening then ends with a play-through.

The next open rehearsal is going to be on Tuesday 28th March 2017, where we'll be playing movements from Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker Suite.
