Members are invited to play in each concert by the Committee in consultation with the concert conductor and usually through section leaders. Rehearsals typically start about 8 weeks before each concert and are usually held on Tuesday evenings from 7.00pm to 9.30pm at the Birchall Hall, Queens College Junior School, Taunton with a short break for refreshments.
For each concert in which they play, members pay a subscription of £30 (£15.00 for students) towards the cost of running the Orchestra.
