Lomond and Clyde Community Orchestra aims to encourage the playing of music in the community. Membership is open to players of all ages and all abilities. The Orchestra meets once a week for rehearsals in St Michael's Church Hall, William Street, Helensburgh from 10.00 to 12.00 noon from autumn through to spring. We are currently in the process of appointing a new conductor and will have more news about this in September.  We give two major concerts each year plus additional performances around Christmas time.

We run an active program of encouraging and helping players. As well as our conductor, we also welcome specialist tutors in strings, wind, brass and percussion to teach the sections of the Orchestra during some Saturday morning sessions. We would like to maintain this program as far as possible, and seek sponsors to help us achieve this. If you would like to help please contact us.

The Orchestra is always looking for new members. Please contact us if you would like to come along and try out the Orchestra. Or just turn up at St. Michael's Hall on a Saturday in the autumn or spring term time before 10 am.

spring concert 2012

We perform 2 concerts a year in Spring - just before Easter and in Winter - at the end of November. 

Variety being the spice of life, we have a varied repertoire. Sometimes we play medleys from musicals and films whilst at other times we play more classical music. We often play music with a parts for beginers and more advanced players so everyone can play at the level they feel most comfortable with.
