2017 - the Centenary Year of the Orchestra
We are a community orchestra made up of people of all ages and musical abilities. We perform around six concerts a year to bring live, light classical music to people of Coventry and Warwickshire. The concerts raise funds for local Charities. The Orchestra is sponsored and supported by the Heart of England Co-operative Society Limited.
There is just one more chance to hear us play a concert in our Centenary Year of 2017! This will be our Christmas Concert and more details can be found by clicking on the link in the box to the right. Do come and enjoy the concert, and at the same time support the valuable work of the Laura Centre charity, which will be our chosen charity for the afternoon.

The orchestra has been on the BBC!
The orchestra played on BBC Coventry & Warwickshire radio between 10 am and 11 am on Friday 3rd February. We were invited to play three pieces live on air and Mark chose Pufffin' Billy, selection from King and I, and selection from Pirates of Penzance. This was a brilliant choice, fitting in well with the members who were able to be present and a sample of the type of music we play. It seemed to have been well received by the members of the BBC, and members of the public who had dropped in for the little concert.
We are actively seeking some additional players for 2017 - all interested musicians are invited to Look at the Join HOECCO page.
