You do not have to be "medical" or a member of the Medical School or the University to join us ... The title of the orchestra derives from the ancient Greek healer Asklepios (Ἀσκληπιός, Latin form Aesculapius) ...'

'For performing members a brief audition will be required so we may “see what you are capable of”. It is nothing to worry about, it is just our way to assess where you would best fit in the society. After all, if you join you will be performing to audiences in theatres such as The Crescent. We place members in singing voices, Soprano, Alto, Tenor, Baritone and Bass. If you don’t know where you fit into the above – don’t worry we will help you! Can you dance? Presently we have dancers who both sing and dance and have joined us from a number of dance schools and have featured in many of our major productions.' Alert The Company writes best contact them via Facebook or email rather than through the Website.
