The Orchestra is based in the Bramall Music Building at Birmingham University where it rehearses on Sunday mornings (10.00 – 13.00) from September to June. Regular concerts are given several times a year in the University’s Elgar Concert Hall and at other venues in the West Midlands. As the orchestra is constantly striving for improved quality we are always interested in hearing from new players. Given the relatively large number of concerts that the BPO performs in a year, many sections operate a rotation system, so it is often possible to perform in occasional concerts. For section specific information, contact the relevant Section Principal, using the email address instrument name exactly as below @bpo.org.uk
