The Bede's Orchestra meets once a week to rehearse for regular concerts.
They perform at least twice a year, being a well-established and integral part of the annual Cabaret Concert held in November and have their own concert in March.
The repertoire covers classical works as well as film scores, show music and arrangements of popular and swing numbers.
All players of orchestral instruments are welcome to take part.
Recently the orchestra ran an exchange with the Sussex County Youth Orchestra from New Jersey and gave a series of concerts both in the USA and here in Sussex.
The emphasis is on serious rehearsal as well as having fun - the joy of making music together cannot be over emphasised!
Recent repertoire has included works by Beethoven, Brahms and Mozart as well as ballet scores, swing orchestra music and an orchestral suite from the musical 'Les Miserables'.
“ As an Old Bedeian myself, it is a great pleasure to help a new generation to realise their huge potential in all that they do, both in and out of the classroom. ”
