Crendon Chamber Orchestra

Formed by Angela and Eric Orgill, the Orchestra began in 1980 as a small baroque group. At the 1997 Long Crendon Arts Festival it evolved into Crendon Chamber Orchestra under the conductorship of Anthony Freeth. On the retirement of Anthony in 1999, the Orchestra welcomed Dr. Jonathan Williams as the new conductor and since then St. Mary’s Church in Thame has been its home. The Orchestra now works with musical directors such as Paul Barritt, David Le Page and Robert Salter, guest conductors such as John Lubbock, Robert Max and Roger Coull and a range of soloists.

We aim to present challenging programmes of interest alike to audience and players. The Orchestra welcomes new players. If you are interested in joining the Orchestra, please speak to any member of the orchestra or send us an email.

We hope you enjoy tonight’s concert. If so, please visit our website and add a comment to our Feedback page. We would also be pleased to hear your suggestions for our future programmes.
