The orchestra consists mainly of members of the healthcare profession, including many from the John Radcliffe Hospital and other Oxford hospitals, and we have been rehearsing and performing there for over 26 years. There are three concerts a year and we often fill the Tingewick Hall with an enthusiastic audience. Each concert is in aid of one or more medical charities.
Our next performance is to be held on Saturday 8th November 2014, at 7.30pm, in the Oxford Town Hall, with conductors Sally Mears and Will Orr. This is a commemorative concert for the 300th anniversary of the death of John Radcliffe, to be jointly held with the Headington Singers, East Oxford Community Choir, East Oxford Youth Choir and Oxford Collutorium.
The programme of music for this concert is as follows:

Tickets are £18 (£15 concessions, under 10s free). It is expected that from September onwards, tickets will be available via the Cairns Library (on the JR site), Tickets Oxford (at the Playhouse), from members of the orchestra, from the charities listed below, and on the door.
