Our players are a variety of standards and we encourage any rusty returners, including those who may be new to ensemble playing or more
experienced players to come and give us a go.
There are no expectations and many of our members have worked their way up from beginner to advanced level with perseverance and the
support of the orchestra.
Find out more about some of our current members below.
Name: Sandy McLean
Instrument: 1st Violin
Length of time with the orchestra: Getting on for 3 years!
"I joined TLO because I just wanted to have a go at being in an orchestra and hearing other players around me. I'd not played for 40 years but everyone was so encouraging that I just kept on going. It's a whole new chapter in my life."
Name: Alex Chattington
Instrument: Double Bass
Length of time with the orchestra: About 22 years!
"When I retired I was looking for a group to play with (initially I was looking for 'Big Band'). I was invited to try TLO because a Bass was needed. 22 years later... and I still enjoy the variety of music but it's the friendly crowd that really makes it!"
Name: Ben Attfield
Length of time with the orchestra: 18 months
