Risingholme Orchestra is a community orchestra for players of all ages. Expertly directed by well-known composer and writer, Philip Norman, our motto Music for Pleasure aptly describes the music we play and the enjoyment we gain from achieving a high standard of performance. Two day-time concerts are presented each year as well as performances to schools and retirement villages.
Current members have a wide range of musical experience and abilities and although orchestral experience is not necessary, a minimum standard of approximately Grade 5 is recommended. The rehearsal times suit those who are able to adjust their working hours as well as retired people, homemakers or students.
Rehearsal times: Thursday 9.45 am – 12.00 pm
Location: Woolston Club, Hargood St Woolston
