Playing Members

How to Join

We currently have vacancies for string players. If you are interested in joining us, please email us at secretary@gortonphil.co.uk with details of your playing standard and experience.

Our orchestra is the oldest in the North West (founded in 1854).

We give six concerts each year, three of which are in the Gorton Monastery. Our professional Orchestra leader is John Resek, who is an ex-BBC Philharmonic player.

We rehearse on Sunday mornings at St Kentigern’s Irish Social Club,
36 Wilbraham Road, Fallowfield M17 7DW, from 10:15 to 12:30.
