Menu Close


Our 2021-22 concert season has  now finished. We restart rehearsals for 2022-23 on Thursday 8 September. We are actively recruiting players for next season, so please get in touch if you are interested.

Under the baton of musical director, Jim Cooke, the OMS orchestra performs a broad range of music from the great symphonies and concertos to the work of contemporary British composers, film music and light orchestral selections. We usually give four concerts each year.

If you love playing the great classical symphonies, and concertos, you’ll love OMS.  We also perform interesting pieces from the light music repertoire, from living composers, of course have the pleasure of accompanying our talented choir during many of our concerts. As a member you will have the opportunity to contribute ideas for new repertoire.

There are vacancies for all strings, and for some woodwind, brass and percussion instruments.

We are delighted to welcome new players. Just email Clare Williams [email protected] in advance before attending a rehearsal.

We rehearse on Thursdays from 7.45 pm to 9.45 pm at Asmall Primary School, Tennyson Drive, Ormskirk, L39 3PJ.
