The St Albans Rehearsal Orchestra is a daytime symphony orchestra who meet weekly during term time to play together for enjoyment.
Come and try out a friendly welcoming orchestra which plays for fun, without the pressure of giving concerts.
Our conductor, Matthew Hardy, studied at the Royal College of Music where he worked with Bernard Haitink, Vladimir Ashkenazy, and Peter Stark. Matthew is an experienced community music leader and is also director of East London Community Band, Southampton University Symphony Orchestra, CoMA London Ensemble, and several other groups.
Matthew is patient and helpful in encouraging us all. Bring your instrument and join us to play some of the works of Beethoven, Dvorak, Mozart and Humperdinck. SARO is a friendly crowd who will make you feel welcome.
There is no audition, but ideally your standard should be around grade 5. This is a free taste and see session.
We would love to see you whatever instrument you play, but we are in particular need of strings and brass players.
