About the organiser

The Rehearsal Orchestra is a musical charity that runs weekend and full-week orchestral courses for future professionals and serious amateurs.

Since 1957, we have offered high-level training through intensive rehearsal, exploring key orchestral repertoire with prominent conductors. This supportive, non-competitive environment allows players to grow as musicians without the pressure of concert giving. Places on every course are heavily subsidised to enable as many players as possible to benefit from the opportunities we offer.
