Questions that prospective new members might ask, together with some answers.
When do you rehearse?
  We rehearse from 7.45 pm to 9.45 pm every Thursday evening during the
  normal school term-time.
Where do you rehearse?
  Rehearsals are held in the comfortable surroundings of Cranmer Methodist Church,
  Newhampton Road West, Wolverhampton. This is on the north west side of the city,
  not far from the main A41 road to Tettenhall and North Wales.
What sort of players are you looking for?
String players
  As with orchestras like ours, we are always looking for good string players in all sections.
  So, if you are a violin, viola, cello or double bass player of Associated Board Grade 7
standard  or better, we would love to hear from you.
Wind players
  We do also from time to time have vacancies in the woodwind and brass sections, where the
  minimum standard would be post Grade 8 or better with suitable orchestral experience.
What should I do if I want to join?
  Please contact us using the details below. We do not normally audition new string members,
  but instead new members are invited to join the Orchestra for a trial period to see how
  they get on. Wind players will be auditioned and also serve a trial period.
