Our aim is to provide a concert programme that is varied and entertaining, with a number of popular favourites, but do not shy away from occasionally playing the less well known or more challenging work as part of our repertoire.
Unlike most other orchestras, we do not have a single musical director. Instead we invite conductors on a per-concert or per rehearsal basis which means that playing with us is always a fresh and stimulating experience. We welcome enquiries from musicians at or above grade 7 standard, especially string players. We rehearse monthly, so our schedule works very well if you already play with other musical groups.
We were formed in 2005 by David Preston and Peter Warner, and our inaugural concert was in July of that year. We rehearse and perform in Tatsfield, on the Surrey-Kent border and we have always enjoyed strong support from the village and from the surrounding areas. Our players come from local towns such as Tunbridge Wells, Sevenoaks, Croydon as well as from Tatsfield itself and further afield.
