North Durham Orchestra


Our orchestra is mainly made up of string instruments. We play all types of music, ranging from Baroque to today's modern music.

Players in our orchestra are usually grade five and above, and we sometimes share woodwind and brass players with the county wind band.

Useful information

We are directed by Sue Lawton and Robert Pearson on alternate Saturday mornings from 10.00am to 1.00pm at Durham Trinity School.

To join our orchestra you or your child need to be recommended by a music teacher and be at a standard of grade five.

If you or your child do not receive music lessons, but you feel you/your child meet the required standard for our band or would like to be involved, please get in touch with us.
