The orchestra consists mainly of members of the healthcare profession, including many from the John Radcliffe Hospital and other Oxford hospitals, and we have been rehearsing and performing there for nearly 40 years. There are three concerts a year and we often fill the Tingewick Hall with an enthusiastic audience. Each concert is in aid of one or more medical charities.
Our next performance is to be held on Saturday 8th June, 2019 at 7.45pm, in the Tingewick Hall of the John Radcliffe Hospital. We are delighted to welcome Catherine Underwood again as our conductor for this concert, and Jocelyn Freeman as our soloist.
