We are finally going to have our big 10th Anniversary Gala Concert at the City Hall after two years of false starts! The date will be Sunday 26th June, starting at 2pm. This concert will be celebrating 10 years of QMO and QMC musical memories with soloists, guest artists and a big repertoire for both the orchestra and choir; include Grieg Piano Concerto, Gabriel's Oboe, The Lord is My Shepherd, In Caelum Fero from Symphonic Adiemus, Finlandia, Capriccio Espagnol, and lots more. 

Anyone and everyone is welcome; we have open door policy and there are no auditions - if you think you are able to play/sing the music to a reasonable standard, then we'd love to have you! See below for rehearsal dates and how to register for the rehearsal and concerts. The Music is now available for download via the MUSIC LIBRARY.

You can now register for both rehearsals and concert. Please remember that you must register for both, so that you will receive emails for all rehearsal updates, and appear on the program.
