The Hampton Concert Orchestra is composed mostly of amateur players, but we also have retired professional players and past and current music teachers among us. High school and university students are also welcome. Some members are adults who have returned to their instruments after playing in high school or university, or who have taken up a second instrument later in life. No playing member receives an honorarium, and all pay an annual membership fee. Special provision is made for cases of financial difficulty. For members over 55 years of age, the fee pays for membership in Silver Threads Service.
Our purpose is for members to have fun playing their musical instruments, while increasing their musical knowledge and skills.
