"The music-making was committed and passionate...incredibly impressive playing."

SBS is a thriving non-professional orchestra with around 50 members, performing a wide range of music including major symphonic works and concertos with professional soloists.

Apart from playing excellent music to very high standards, the objectives of the orchestra include fund-raising for St Mary's Hospice. Costs of rehearsals, etc., are borne by the membership through subscriptions, so that profits from concerts can go to our charitable efforts.

If you are interested in joining, please contact the secretary at enquiries[at]

These SBS web pages contain much more information of interest to future members. Note particularly that rehearsals are on Monday evenings in school term time and all players are expected to attend all rehearsals and contribute their subscription.
