Blackheath Halls Orchestra

Blackheath Halls Orchestra was re-established in September 2006 and has gone from strength to strength. The orchestra has been involved in numerous projects, including accompanying all the Blackheath Halls Community operas. The orchestra now has over 60 members.

Orchestra members have the opportunity to take part in four projects each year; all rehearsals take place at Blackheath Halls, and projects culminate with a performance in the Great Hall. 

Orchestra members comments:

"I love playing in this orchestra, and enjoy it more than any other orchestra I have ever played in!"

"I love the community feeling of the orchestra and how loyal everyone is."

"I like the relaxed and friendly atmosphere."

We currently have space for violins, violas and French horns. Anyone interested in joining the orchestra should email Rose Ballantyne at [email protected]
