Here you can browse through some pictures of the orchestra. This gives a good idea of what we're like and also is a nice record of its history.

  • The first picture of the orchestra from our first term in March 2004.
  • By the autumn of 2004, we had started to grow. Here is the orchestra, with guest trumpeter Matthew Tickle.
  • By the summer of 2005, we had grown to a nice size, with 2 percussionists.
  • The orchestra in its final rehearsal before the Christmas concert of 2007
  • Each concert features small group and solo performances from members of the orchestra. Our 2008 Spring concert featured a duet by Bob and Ethel.
  • The spring term of 2009 saw Tracy Tickle stand in as guest pianist as Frank had to miss the concert. Here is Frank helping Tracy learn the pieces.
