The Boston Orchestra was founded in 1937 to bring together local talented musicians and provide them with the opportunity to enjoy the experience of playing in an orchestra. We meet weekly for rehearsals and present 2 concerts a year in and around Boston, often in local village churches in order to take live music out into the rural community. Partnerships have also been formed to support local charities.
Membership is open to players of all ages and ability who hold a keen interest in music and can play an orchestral instrument. There are no auditions: all that is required is commitment and a love of music.
Young students are encouraged to join free of charge and stay until they leave school and many of our members have played in their youth and are re-igniting their interest in later life. Recent learners are also very welcome – it’s never too late to learn to play an instrument and recent research has proved that it is one of the best activities for retaining brain function and increasing efficiency in all areas of learning.
The members are the backbone of the orchestra which has, for many years, been the only regularly rehearsing amateur orchestra in the south of Lincolnshire.
