Join the OUP Orchestra

Oxford University Press (OUP) has recently established a high-quality amateur orchestra for staff members across the University and is inviting more staff  to join them.

After a successful debut concert they are now looking for more players – especially strings – to boost the size of the orchestra.

No audition is needed to join the orchestra but the music covered does requires a playing standard of at least Grade 7.

Rehearsals, which are fun and relaxed, take place at the OUP Office on Walton Street from 17:15 to-19:15 on Wednesdays and include tea breaks and post-rehearsal pub trips.

The Orchestra’s next concert, on Wednesday 5 July, will feature the work of Beethoven, Ravel, and Vaughan Williams.

Please contact for more information. To join the OUP Orchestra Facebook group search 'OUP Orchestra' and request an invite – details of the concert in July will be published on the Facebook site shortly.
