‘Established in 1988 with support from Sir Harry Djanogly ... In 1992, a sister organisation - the Djanogly Community Choir - was also created and performed a few concerts with the orchestra, but sadly folded a few years later ... A friendly amateur orchestra based in Nottingham ... Usually perform three concerts per year. Our music is varied – including symphonies, shorter pieces for orchestra, children’s concerts, works in conjunction with a local choir, and concertos (frequently using local young musicians – which we particularly enjoy and  provides inspiration to us all) ... As a large amateur orchestra we often need additional players – either because a current member leaves or is away for a specific concert, or where additional players or “unusual” instruments (e.g. Bass Clarinet, Harp, extra percussion, etc) are needed for a piece. To join you need to be a competent player at least at grade 5 or equivalent.‘

Many of its players are music teachers, whilst the remainder is made up of those doing a wide variety of jobs, as well as retired people and students. Their common link is that they enjoy the opportunity to play together, participating in challenging and demanding music, requiring a high standard of playing. Members are selected by audition ... Several professional conductors have said that this orchestra is one of the best non-professional orchestras in the country.’

'The Albert Hall Nottingham's grand ornate architecture was designed at the turn of the 20th century in the style of an Edwardian music hall. The Great Hall serves as an excellent auditorium for public performances of many genres ... Organ no. 552, a four manual 59 stop instrument, was erected in 1909 in the then Wesleyan Central Mission which was later renamed the Albert Hall. (An almost identical instrument was built for Rochdale Town Hall in 1913.) The instrument cost £4,500 and was financed by Jesse Boot (founder of the Boots Company) as a gift to the City of Nottingham, to be known as the City Organ.'
