We are delighted to announce that this year sees the birth of Somerville College Orchestra!

The orchestra will be non-auditioned and musicians from any college are welcome to join, although previous orchestral experience is preferable. Rehearsals will take place at 7.30pm on Mondays in The Chapel and there will be a concert in 7th Week. It will be run and conducted by students, however we are fortunate to have the assistance of professional conductor, and Somerville Music Associate, Hilary Davan Wetton, who will be visiting at various points throughout the year to offer his advice and coaching to the orchestra’s musicians and, in particular, conductors.

For any students interested in joining as a musician or conductor, please get in touch with the orchestra manager, Saffiyah Keig-Momin: saffiyah.keig-momin@some.ox.ac.uk.
