A little bit about us ...
Welcome to Skipton Community Orchestra. The orchestra was set up in January 2012 to provide an opportunity for people to come along and play music together and hopefully make a reasonable sound!
5 years on, we are going from strength to strength...
We are open to all abilities; some people are just learning a musical instrument while others are experienced players who have not picked up their instruments for a long while.
The emphasis is on having fun - we just want everyone to enjoy the sessions and maybe learn something new along the way!
Don't worry if you're a bit rusty! It is all for fun so come and have a go!
The orchestra meets twice a month in the evening. There is no need to commit to coming to every rehearsal - it is "pay as you play". Our rehearsals are fairly informal and we play a variety of well-known classical pieces as well as some more contemporary tunes, songs from musicals and films etc.
We currently have around 30 members with a range of instruments (violins, violas, flutes, clarinets, cellos, bassoon, French horns, oboe, piano, saxophone, trumpets, trombones).
The orchestra is very grateful to the following organisations and businesses for their generous support: Skipton Rotary Club, Skipton Town Council, Skipton Mechanics Institute, Skipton Gala Committee, The Craven Trust, The North Yorkshire Fund, The Two Ridings Community Foundation and Skipton Building Society Grassroots Giving Award.
