Upcoming Concerts

Let's Get In Touch!

We currently have vacancies for bassoon, French horn and tuba. We are also looking for a double bass player - you don’t need to have your own instrument as Caprice has one we can loan you!

Applications from players of other instruments are also warmly welcomed, although there may be a waiting list as we need to maintain a balance between sections.

If you are interested in joining Caprice please contact: David Bome

We rehearse weekly during school term time on Tuesdays 19.15-21.00 at Newland’s Spring School. A subscription of £20 per term is charged, with discounts for students/retired/unemployed.
