Join a Little Orchestra

Little Other presents a Little Orchestra ... at the moment, it's actually a very little orchestra, but it's growing - and hopefully, growing in such a way as to include you. Ever learnt astring/brass/woodwind instrument and now don't know what to do with it? Well, come along and join us for a rehearsal, every other tuesday in London (starting the 12th of January). Our little orchestra will begin by playing Terry Riley's minimalist classic 'In C' and then ... who knows? The sky is the limit. Though for the time being, we will probably concentrate on those contemporary classical pieces written 'for any arrangement of instruments', ultimately the plan is that members of the ensemble will start composing pieces for the ensemble to play, that external composers will do the same, and that the ensemble will be available for performed or recorded arrangements of pop songs and so forth. If you would like to join, please email in via the address on the top right of this page (or through our Facebook group) - at the moment we are particularly looking for lower register string instruments (cello, double bass) and higher register brass (trumpet, cornet, french horn), but really any standard orchestral, big band, or brass band instruments are welcome.
