We currently have vacancies for string 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 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 Lostock High School,
Selby Road, Stretford, Manchester M32 9PL, from 10:15 to 12:30.
