Play for Pleasure Rehearsals

If you're a musician then why not join us for a rehearsal? The orchestra meets in Guildford at 7.30pm every Tuesday night during school term-time and at the start of each term we hold a number of 'Play for Pleasure' rehearsals. These are designed to welcome new members, or people interested in joining the orchestra. There is no fee for attending these sessions and no obligation to become a member.

You won't be asked to attend an audition, but the standard we normally require is good Grade 7 to Grade 8. If you have previous experience of regularly playing in an ensemble then that would be equally valuable.

If you would like to attend a rehearsal then please email our secretary ( to tell us you're thinking of coming - we just need to manage the scenario of 10 flutes arriving at once! We rehearse at Queen Eleanor's School near the centre of Guildford and the Google map below provides details about how to find us. 

Playing in the GSO is stimulating and rewarding, so whether you're thinking of taking that musical instrument out of the cupboard to start playing again, or are a regular musician who's new to the area, please do get in touch. 


We look forward to welcoming you to a Play for Pleasure rehearsal soon!
