  • open to all-comers,
  • run by its members, and
  • creates parts for all players (beginners to advanced).

As far as we know, this is unique amongst community orchestras.

When and where does MRCO rehearse?

Time and location of upcoming rehearsals are shown in the calendar.

What does it cost?

Subscription rates are described here: How to pay your subscription.

You are welcome to come and try a couple of sessions with no obligation.

MRCO members are determined that there should be no financial restriction to anyone joining – and so we operate a ‘pay what you can’ scheme. Please discuss with the Treasurer.

How do I get my music?

We provide all music. Members who want to practise at home can find all the parts (together with rehearsal recordings) on the website. Have a look in our music section to see what we're playing. New members receive a login for the website with which they can download the sheet music.

How do I join?

If you are interested, drop us an email, or just turn up with your instrument (together with a music stand if you have one) on a Sunday evening.
