Keele Philharmonic Orchestra welcomes players from both the student and staffing bodies of Keele University, plus the local community, to come together to enjoy playing classical repertoire.

 

WHAT WE DO 

We rehearse weekly with a high focus on classical orchestral repertoire, helping us to enhance our music techniques. We are largely student-led, giving members opportunities (if they wish) to take roles within the society e.g. conducting, arranging music, and leading sectionals. We perform 2-3 concerts per year which take place in the University Chapel, showcasing our work within the orchestra. We also perform alongside the other music groups, occasionally doing joint pieces.

Repertoire for the 2021-2022 academic year included: Noon Witch- Dvorak, Tsar’s Bride- Rimsky- Korsakov, Suite of English Folk Dances- Tomlinson, Hungarian Dances- Brahms.

  

WHO CAN JOIN? 

We are always looking for new members and welcome orchestral players of approximately grade 5 standard and above, however anyone is welcome to come along and have a go- there is no audition process!
