We have been entertaining Mid Sussex with high-quality classical music since 1979.
We perform in May and November each year at St. Andrew’s Church Burgess Hill and in June in St. John’s Park.
Do you play an instrument to a good standard?
Would you like to play with a friendly bunch of dedicated people?
