‘Consists of local musicians who play classical music concerts in south Leicester ... Musically, it has always been an important feature of the Civic Orchestra’s programmes to perform a really wide-ranging choice of music. Each season the repertoire includes established masterpieces, new works and popular programmes such as Viennese and "Prom" concerts. It is hoped to continue performing a similarly eclectic repertoire in future events.'
