The Durham First Orchestra is a friendly and relaxed group who meet every Monday to play music together.

We are often the first large orchestra our pupils play in and we teach them how to play together in a group and lots of musical skills. We aim to have a concert at the end of each term to show off their wonderful pieces to their families. Our students will move up into the Durham District Orchestra when they reach Grade 3 standard.

Rehearsal happen weekly during term time. We meet in the cafe in the Durham Johnston foyer at around 3:45/3:50pm to be ready to play at 4pm.

Instruments: Violin, Viola, Cello and Double Bass

Level: Beginner to Grade 3
