‘A friendly community band, welcoming players of all ages. We are busy providing musical performances in Buckinghamshire and beyond, with a mixture of indoor and outdoor concerts held throughout the year. We aim to promote music-making in our region, encouraging other groups to join us in performance; and, not least, to enjoy the company and friendship of like-minded folk. For those who might be wondering, the band took its name from the days when it was based in Bisham School. The band moved to Stokenchurch some years ago but decided to retain the original name. Less concerned with formal playing qualifications, we are keen to attract committed musicians willing to help us move forward. The current repertoire, which is broad based, requires a playing level equivalent to Grade VI or above.’

'An amateur string orchestra for adults. Our players include music professionals and advanced amateurs. As a non-profit organisation we simply seek to cover the costs of staging our concerts. Some of our concerts raise funds for charity. Our objective is to share the enjoyment of music-making and to bring a wide range of music to our audiences. We stage three concerts per year and through this we provide an opportunity for soloists to perform with an orchestra. Often we combine with wind players, choirs and others to offer a wider range of music than the typical string repertoire.'

‘On the 2nd of January 1923, 12 good men and true gathered at Westbourne Street Methodist Church in High Wycombe with one desire: to form a choir. The main objective was to create and deliver high quality singing entertainment for the town and the villages of South Buckinghamshire. Today ... the Choir ... has grown to 60 members ... and continues to provide entertaining music of all kinds to the South Bucks area (and well beyond). And in those intervening years, the Orpheus has notched up more than 60 male voice choir festival awards by projecting a warm, friendly atmosphere, and a sense of fun in what they are singing while maintaining very high standards of vocal music and a distinctive Orpheus “sound.”’

It maintains the proportions of a classical orchestra but regularly expands to perform romantic and modern works. The players come from High Wycombe and the surrounding area. We like to provide younger local soloists with the opportunity to play a concerto with the orchestra and we also commission works from aspiring composers in the area.’
