The orchestra is run by its members, and we ask everyone to give a very small amount of their time to help make each concert runs smoothly. It might be helping set up the stage, or handing out programmes, or organising a social event.

Please get in touch with Francis Norton if you have not yet got a job for the coming concert. Thank you.
