Join City of Carlisle Orchestra

The orchestra provides an opportunity for regular rehearsals of the symphony repertoire for amateur and professional players. There is also the great experience of playing three concerts a year.

Players should be a minimum of Grade 6 standard, or have equivalent experience, and membership covers all ages, ranging from teenagers to the retired.

The orchestra is a self-financing organisation. We are dependent on revenue from ticket sales and membership subscriptions.

Membership subscriptions are £35 per term or £90 for the year. Membership for students in full-time education is free.

Rehearsals take place once a week during term time at Trinity Secondary School, Carlisle. We rehearse from 7.15pm till 9pm.
