Rehearsals are currently paused due to COVID restrictions, however we aim to re-start rehearsals as soon as it is possible to do so. FEO is continually monitoring Government advice and rules relating to the evolving COVID-19 pandemic, to determine if COVID-safe rehearsals can be held. Further information will be circulated to orchestra members by email closer to the time, or please check back here, or check our facebook page for further updates.
Rehearsals are 7:30pm to 9:30pm on Wednesday evenings, usually at venues in Histon or Cottenham, to the north of Cambridge city. Please bring your own music stand and music. We aim to start playing at 7:30pm, so please arrive in time to set up beforehand.
