We rehearse on Thursday Evenings 7.30pm - 9.30pm during term-time. NB. new venue at Richmond Methodist Church, Dundas St. DL10 7AB.  If you would like to join us, please telephone the secretary, Janet Smith, on 01969 622665, or email her at   Entry is open to all string players, but places for wind and brass players depend on the balance of forces available.

Besides giving orchestral concerts the orchestra has recently joined with Richmondshire Choral Society for Choral Concerts and has also accompanied a “Songs of Praise” for the churches of Richmond. There is a strong social side to the orchestra and most terms there is a celebratory orchestral dinner. The orchestra is managed by a committee (see policies and governance for further details) and once a year we raise money through running a Coffee Morning at Richmond Town hall.
