CLO is an orchestra of around 70 amateur and semi-professional musicians who meet in Henley Community Centre, near Ipswich, every Tuesday morning during school term times. We perform concerts of ‘light classical’ and popular music in aid of charities.


Director/Leader - our Musical Director is Roger Jones and Cecilia Metherell leads the orchestra.


Rehearsals - Tuesday mornings 1000-1200 term time at Henley Community Centre, IP6 0RP.  


Other groups - The String Orchestra meets fortnightly after the main rehearsal 1230-1400.


Membership - We expect members to attend rehearsals and to participate in our Saturday evening concerts (normally three per year).  Subs are currently £20 per term plus group subs.  We currently have a waiting list in some sections - please get in touch with the secretary.
