Chorleywood Orchestra – About Us
Founded in 2016 by Andrew McFarlane and Christine Deeley, Chorleywood Music is a community music society for classical musicians in Chorleywood and nearby villages.
The Chorleywood Orchestra currently has over 30 members. We welcome orchestral instrumentalists of all ages from grade 6+ to play in the orchestra, including those who’ve not played for some time.
We choose enjoyable and accessible music to play – changing our selection of pieces regularly to keep it interesting for everyone involved, and we present several concerts each year in Chorleywood and the surrounding areas. Recent concerts have included works by Dvorak, Beethoven, Butterworth, Mozart, Elgar and lots more.
Our principal conductor is Daniel Hogan and our Associate Conductor is Ryan Bunce.
Chorleywood Music is part of the Making Music (National Federation of Music Societies) Network, a registered charity in the UK. Our aim is to enable our neighbours to make and enjoy music on their doorstep. We want to encourage music making in the local community.
Chorleywood Music was registered with the Charity Commission as a Charitable Incorporated Organisation on 20th February 2018 – Charity No. 1177244.
