The orchestra currently has approximately 40 members – comprising upper and lower strings, woodwind, brass and a timpanist. We can always accommodate more strings (especially upper) and brass players.
Our sister organisation ‘SARO Winds’ has vacancies for other wind and brass players.
All enquiries about SARO should be addressed to the Secretary or to the Chairman and for SARO Winds see the Contacts Page.
The orchestra is financially self-supporting and the termly fee (currently about £60, depending on the length of the term) is payable in advance.
Potential members are most welcome to join us for one or two sessions without obligations or cost. No auditions are necessary but a standard of grade 4 or 5 or above is advisable
