Information for new orchestra members

We are delighted to welcome you to Trianon Music Group and hope that you will enjoy playing with us.

As well as the three major concerts each year that Trianon performs, there are a whole host of other music related activities in which you will, of course, be very welcome to participate. Details of these are included in Trianon News, which is posted out to members three times a year with the rehearsal schedule and commitment slip before each concert. Information is also given out at rehearsals and will be available on our Web Site: We are on Facebook and please also follow us on Twitter@MusicTrianon.

Rehearsals – begin at 7.15pm and end at 9.45pm unless advised otherwise. A short refreshment break is taken during each rehearsal, providing an opportunity for social interaction as well as buying concert tickets.

Tickets. We produce good quality Concert Publicity and promotion materials in the form of posters and handbills – you are encouraged to circulate these in your local area. You can strongly influence our audience numbers by personally inviting friends, colleagues and family members to support our concerts. Tickets are available in advance from John Barratt, the Card Centre, 6 Hamilton Road, Felixstowe, IP11 7AU. Tel: 01394 283170/ 07876 787029.

Attendance – please check your availability for rehearsals and indicate likely absences as soon as possible on the Register, which is available at every rehearsal. A sectional rehearsal is usually planned leading up to each major concert. Attendance at these, and also on the morning of the concert, is really important.

Music – music for the concerts is provided by Trianon. Please only use soft pencils (at least a 2B lead) to mark copies – never mark in ink!!! Take care of your music – we would need to ask you to replace any lost music.

Subscriptions – please see Subscriptions

Bursary Scheme – Trianon is very proud of its almost unique aim to encourage young persons in particular through a bursary scheme, which assists in their musical education. You are invited to introduce young people and other interested friends and colleagues to join us in exciting musical ventures.

We would recommend you view the Trianon Music Group website for all other contact details and general information about the Group

Scholarship For School Age Students – To complement the bursary scheme, we have launched our scholarships for school age students. These scholarships will support any school age student by funding their annual Trianon membership fee and allow them to participate in the full range of concert events. These scholarships are available to our existing members of school age, and we look forward to greeting new members who wish to be part of the ‘Trianon Experience’.
