Richmond Orchestra


The Richmond Orchestra is an integral part of Richmond's outstanding mix of amateur music making. It is a genuine amateur orchestra which aims to play the mainstream orchestral repertoire in public to the highest possible standard. The membership of the orchestra is very broad -a lot who are young, a few who are retired, there are designers, nurses, IT specialists, lawyers, managers, and doctors among its members and all are there because they want to play music and are committed enough to rehearse and to practice. They believe passionately that making music should be enriching and fun.

The Richmond Orchestra welcomes enquiries from keen amateur players. We would be particularly interested to hear from any double bass, violin, viola, trombone, other brass or harp players. The orchestra rehearses between 7:30 and 10:00 pm on Wednesday evenings.

Rehearsals on Wednesdays from 7.30 to 10.00pm in Kew.
