December 2023

We are currently looking to expand our pool of players in the wind and brass sections.  We would principally like to hear from clarinet, horn and trumpet players who would be interested in joining us as regular playing members. However, players who might join us on a more irregular basis may also be of interest.  If you wish to be considered, please send details of your playing experience and qualifications to the DChO Chairman, Jerry Ryall at
