How to Join

We currently have vacancies for string players, however there are not currently any vacancies for woodwind.  We do not audition players, if you are interested in joining us, please email us at with details of your playing standard and experience.

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

We give five concerts each year at Gorton Monastery, the RNCM and Holy Innocents Fallowfield. 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.
