Join us!

The members of the CSO come from all walks of life and are very welcoming to new players. If you have some experience of orchestral playing, please send us an e-mail if you are interested in joining our very friendly orchestra.

We rehearse on a weekly basis, every Friday night at 7:30-10pm at East Croydon United Reformed Church, Addiscombe Grove, Croydon, CR0 5LP (a short distance walk form East Croydon Station). Limited free parking is available on site.

We charge an annual subscription of £140 with a student/unwaged reduced rate of £90.

Anyone thinking of joining can come along to one or two rehearsals before committing any money, so there is no need to be shy!! String players are always welcome and wind and brass vacancies (minimum grade 8) occur from time to time.


Strings (all sections)

Our open rehearsals are especially designed for potential new members to come and ‘try us out’. Please contact us at if you are interested in coming to a rehearsal.
