We are currently holding rehearsals over Zoom, and non-members are very welcome to join us. We will rehearse from 7.30 until around 9pm on Monday evenings, beginning on 7 September 2020 for the new season.
To try us out, you will need an internet-connected device with audio and (preferably) a camera, set up in a convenient place for you to rehearse.

Our normal rehearsals
As soon as we can, we will resume rehearsing at Haslemere Hall, where the orchestra rehearses in the Hall while the chorus sings in the Annexe; as we approach a concert we join together to rehearse. We normally work through to around 10pm, with a coffee break at around 8.45. Rehearsals are simultaneously serious and fun - we work hard, and strive to achieve high standards, but we enjoy doing it! We are proud of our friendly and approachable reputation and friends old and new chat over coffee, and leave the Hall at 10pm exhilirated from the work out!
For environmental reasons, we ask that members and guests bring their own coffee or tea cup, and for health & safety reasons we ask that instrumentalists bring their own music stand (although if that is difficult for you, please talk to us as we may be able to help).
Scores are provided and there is no additional charge for music hire. As all our scores are hired, we do ask that you take good care of them so they can be returned to the owner in good condition.
