We explore a wide-ranging string repertoire from Baroque to contemporary with a professional conductor (see Concerts page) and leader and we recruit talented post-graduate students to work with us offering them solo opportunities and experience of music in education. Our membership is wide-ranging and includes peripatetic music teachers, students and retired amateur and professional players.

Do consider joining us. New players (minimum standard Grade 8) are welcome for the coming season and beyond.

As a registered charity, we are keen to encourage sponsorship for our activities. The Nonesuch Orchestra is affiliated to Making Music, which represents and supports amateur vocal, instrumental and promoting societies throughout the United Kingdom.
