Windermere Orchestra

JOIN US!

If you play an orchestral musical instrument why not come and join us at Windermere Orchestra?

We are a friendly supportive group of adult players who make music for our own pleasure.

Our rehearsals, under musical director Richard Bagnall are always enjoyable, instructive and not stressful.

All players are welcome from the advanced learner through to the most experienced. If you are looking for a way back into orchestral playing after a break then join us.
