Sturminster Newton Orchestra




About Us





The orchestra is entirely self-financing. The weekly subscriptions are collected on an honour basis. The monies pay for an honorarium to the conductor, the hire of our rehearsal facilities and concert venues, refreshments at rehearsals, the purchase of sheet music, and publicity. Orchestra funds are audited every year and the accounts are presented at the Annual General Meeting.

Current subscription rate is £3 per rehearsal for adults (£2 for a parent if accompanying a child), £1 for people under 18.  Payment can be made in cash weekly or termly by cheque or bank transfer.


The orchestra is insured against personal accidents at rehearsal and concerts. The insurance of musical instruments, however, is the individual’s responsibility; we suggest that you include your instrument on your household insurance policy.
