The Hitchin Light Orchestra is a unique institution and is difficult to describe in words - but here goes!
Imagine a concert orchestra – violins, cellos, trumpets, trombones, flutes, clarinets, percussion and so on. Then add a bunch of saxophone players and a jazz rock rhythm section and a group of about twenty singers, around seventy people in all. This gives you the size of it, but the next thing you would notice at a gig is that there are all different age groups. You have 10 year olds playing next to 70 year olds, students and teachers playing from the same part!
Hitchin Light Orchestra is a huge community orchestra playing an eclectic mix of music - jazz, Latin rock, film, show and classical.
We aim for a high musical standard but achieved with the maximum fun possible.
We rehearse on Tuesdays 7.30 pm - 9.00 pm in term time at Wilshere-Dacre School, Fishponds Road, Hitchin, Herts. SG5 1NS
We do great concerts and tours to Europe.
Anyone can join - come along, bring your instrument and if you like it - you're in!
HLO runs on a subscription basis - currently £75 per 10 week term.
