Future event: Christmas concert

Along with the presents, midnight masses and televisual extravaganzas, what else makes our Christmas special? Our Christmas concert! This year, it is on December 5th. The orchestra will be playing a number of classical and popular pieces as well as some Christmas favourites. All are welcome. The concert is free, though a voluntary donation can be given at the door. All proceeds are given to charity. Further details on our Calendar page.

Future event: 2020 Spring and Summer terms

2020 might seem a long way in the future. We haven't even got through Christmas yet! However, the dates for the 2020 Spring term are available on our Calendar page. The term starts on the 16th January and the Spring concert will be on the 26th March, 2020. You can also see advanced notice of the 2020 Summer term's dates on the same page.

As a reminder, you can see what the orchestra is like by just turning up to any of our rehearsals, instrument in hand. Elaine can provide parts for most instruments at any level, so if you let her know you're turning up we can get a part ready if needed. To let us know you're coming, you can e-mail wco@windsororchestra.org.uk.

November 2019 charity concert postponed

We had announced that the Windsor Community Orchestra was to appear in an evening charity concert raising money for the Windsor Homeless Project. This was to have been on Saturday 23rd November.

Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond our (or anyone's) control, this event is being postponed. New details will be announced in 2020.

2019 Autumn term begins

Summer is over, but whilst the onset of some wind and rain might dampen the spirits of some, the Windsor Community Orchestra is delighted to announced that its Autumn term has started. Our first meeting was on the 26th September. All the dates for our 2019 Autumn term are now available on our Calendar page.

This term, we're playing Tchaikovsky's Waltz of the Flowers, and Trepak, both from The Nutcracker. We're also playing Anderson's famous Sleigh Ride. These are being mixed with a little bit of film music, some show music and a Christmas Carol. This makes a nice seasonal mix for the Christmas concert on the 5th December. Details of the concert are on the Calendar page.

On Saturday 3rd August, we performed in the Windsor Band Stand in Alexandra Gardens. It was a warm and pleasant day with lots of people enjoying the park. We played some of our more up-tempo pieces in two 40 minutes sessions. Many people stopped and enjoyed the music and £80 was raised for charity, which will go to the Windsor Homeless Project.
