Rehearsal Orchestra: Edinburgh Week
About the event
Our annual Edinburgh summer residential course is a unique and exciting venture, combining concentrated rehearsals of a wide range of repertoire during the day with the opportunity to explore Edinburgh and Festival and Fringe events during the evening.
The orchestra was founded as the Edinburgh Rehearsal Orchestra in 1957, as a way of giving players something to do during the day (“keeping out of the rain”) between festival events; the orchestra met in Edinburgh every summer thereafter and it was very hard to have to cancel in 2020 and 2021 because of covid restrictions. We were thrilled to be able to return in 2022 and are already looking forward to August 2023! Details for Edinburgh 2023 will be posted in the New Year.
“Lovely people, very warm and welcoming community. Great to meet people of different age groups and backgrounds. The repertoire is challenging and interesting, and has definitely kept me on my toes.”
“Thank you for a wonderful week in Edinburgh. So good to be back!”
“I had a fab week of music making, thank you. The range of rep and the pace kept everything energised the whole way through.”
