The present orchestra was formed in 1952, generally playing three concerts a year in local venues. We are a group of enthusiastic and friendly musicians getting together once a week to rehearse for a series of concerts throughout the concert season.

The orchestra plays a wide variety of music from the standard classical repertoire through to light classics. Our concerts provide an opportunity for everyone to experience live music played by a full orchestra in local venues.

We meet and rehearse from 8pm to 10pm on Tuesday evenings at All Saints Church Hall, off Park Road, Southport
