If you have a listen it'll give us a head start!

Also this term for the first time in 4 years because of increased costs we are going to be increasing subscriptions to £60 for the term – there will still be family rates (2 from same family £100) Please call to discuss if this causes serious problems for you.

Ok guys here is a good version of"a most wonderful christmas"



The Hitchin Light Orchestra is a unique institution and is difficult to describe in words - but here goes!

Imagine a concert orchestra – violins, cellos, trumpets, trombones, flutes, clarinets, percussion and so on. Then add a bunch of saxophone players and a jazz rock rhythm section and a group of about twenty singers, around seventy people in all. This gives you the size of it, but the next thing you would notice at a gig is that there are all different age groups. You have 10 year olds playing next to 70 year olds, students and teachers playing from the same part! The music too, is eclectic, ranging from big band tunes from the Glenn Miller era, through to film themes right up to current chart material.
