Stockbridge and New Town Community Orchestra


Stockbridge and New Town Community Orchestra is a for-fun organisation of Edinburgh-area amateur musicians who like to get together Thursday nights for a bit of playing.  They have been around since 1995 and hold two concerts every year - but meet mostly just to play.   Musical focus varies from orchestral favourites like Sibelius's Finlandia and the March to the Scaffold from Berlioz's Symphonie Fantastique to smaller works for soloists, such as Mozart's 4th horn concerto, immortalised in Flanders & Swann's affectionate pastiche Ill Wind
