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 held on Tuesday evenings from 7.00pm to 9.30pm with a short break for refreshments.

The rehearsal schedules for forthcoming concerts are given below.

For each concert in which they play, members pay a subscription of £25 (£12.50 for students) towards the cost of running the Orchestra.
