The Abbey Gateway Orchestra is a St Albans’ based amateur orchestra. We are very friendly and inclusive and welcome players of all abilities, ages and backgrounds.
The orchestra performs a varied repertoire at a formal concert each year. We also seek out interesting and unusual opportunities to perform. Past events have included conductor’s workshops, ‘busking’ at St Pancras Station, accompanying a children’s ballet school at a local concert and performing A Level students’ original compositions. This year’s events include a virtual reality evening, a film music day and a chamber music evening.
We also offer members the opportunity to play concertos with the orchestra, usually at a workshop, as well as composing original pieces.
