Members

Cellos 2006

The orchestra rehearses on Mondays from 19:30 to 22:00 at Bishop Justus CE School, Magpie Hall Lane, Bromley BR2 8HZ. Please bring a music stand to rehearsals.  Bowed string parts are available online after the first rehearsal and string players mark up their own parts. Tea, coffee and biscuits are normally available for 50p during the rehearsal interval – please bring your own mug if possible.

We welcome applications from prospective members and ask new members to complete a registration form and Gift Aid declaration after their first rehearsal. We collect an annual subscription from members who attend rehearsals, with a 50% discount for students. Seating positions are rotated where possible and there are opportunities to perform solo parts.

Playing members commit to the full rehearsal series for each concert they play in. If an absence is unavoidable please contact your section leader immediately, and if you were due to rehearse a solo part, please find a deputy. Members are also expected to put in the necessary time outside rehearsals to learn and practise the pieces they perform, and to promote ticket sales for all the orchestra’s concerts. 

There is a facebook members group ‘BSO Tutti‘, an official facebook page to like and follow, a twitter feed @BromleySymphony and an Instagram account bromleysymphony. Many instrument sections have WhatsApp groups – ask your section leader to be invited. Some members socialise at The Two Doves in Oakley Road after rehearsals and The Railway in West Wickham after concerts.
