The Philharmonia, affectionately known as 'Baby', is UCPO's chamber orchestra. It allows us to tackle a wider range of music, and cater for players who may not be able to make the Wednesday evening rehearsals of the main orchestra.
Like the main orchestra, we do not audition for the Philharmonia, and players are welcome as long as we have a part for them to play... Rehearsals take place on Saturdays in Michaelmas and Lent terms, followed by a concert each term. Membership is currently free to anyone who's a member of the main orchestra.
Rehearsals for Michaelmas and Lent in the 2012/13 academic year will take place on Saturday afternoons at 2 p.m. in a variety of places, including Churchill College's Recital Room and Mong Hall in Sidney Sussex. Keep an eye on the weekly e-mails, and the rehearsal schedule page for more information.
If you would like to play in UCP, please contact the chair or ask a friendly committee member at an UCPO rehearsal. If there are players required, an e-mail will usually reach the main UCPO list to gauge interest.
Meanwhile, mp3 recordings of some of our previous concerts are now online.
Baby will be restarting in Michaelmas term, October 2013. This page will be updated when we have decided repertoire.
