What we play
The orchestra’s repertoire is of classical music from across the sixteenth century to the present-day and ranging in character from miniatures to full scale symphonic works.
Authentic editions are used whenever possible; special musical arrangements are adopted occasionally to overcome the absence of a particular instrument.
Details of this year’s repertoire can be found under the above Music tab.
