All members of the orchestra are expected to practise their parts between rehearsals! String players are responsible for making sure their parts have the correct bowing early on in term.

As we are fortunate to have large string sections, it is important that members don't take parts away if they're not going to be at the following rehearsal. Wind players are responsible for booking deps for any rehearsals they miss - and obviously need to make sure the music is in the rehearsal hall for the dep to use. If you have music and find that you need to miss a rehearsal, please contact James Taylor to make arrangements for the music to be returned in time for the next rehearsal.

Parts for many of the pieces we play can be downloaded for practise from IMSLP, the Petrucci Music Library.
