We hope to be back Thursday July 22nd - if all goes to plan!!
Sadly we have had to suspend our rehearsals owing to the Covid 19 virus outbreak. Unfortunately the delay in Step 4 of the relaxation of Social Distancing means that we have had to postpone our re -opening of rehearsals until after the next Step 4 deadline of July 19th It is hoped that we can fit in two rehearsal dates of July 22nd and July 29th before finishing for the summer break. Members please check your emails to get the latest news. Any new players wishing to join us , please email for details. we welcome all players - with no audition required.
Welcome to the website of Wirral Community Orchestra. The orchestra began life in January 2014 under the Musical Directorship of John Modelski, and since then the orchestra has grown in number – currently having about 50 members- whilst maintaining its aim of being a "friendly group of musicians with a shared passion for making music".
As a community orchestra, we pride ourselves on being an open admission orchestra. We welcome all players aged 16yrs and above irrespective of their experience, or proficiency. Our members span a wide age range and as musicians include those, who are returning to playing after perhaps playing in their youth , to more experienced players who have enjoy playing in an orchestra for many years and give valuable support and encouragement to other less proficient players.
Our repertoire is always varied and challenging with music ranging from light classical music, medleys from musical shows, film themes and popular pieces. We perform several concerts each year and are always willing to support local charity events, please contact us via our website or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
