The Rococo Players form Rugby's leading amateur orchestra, specialising as the
name suggests in music for smaller forces. The orchestra was founded by the
late George Dazeley in the late 1950's and subsequent conductors have included
Michael Tillet, Martin Jackson, Peter Bullett, John Stafford, Richard Mayo,
Matthew Gould, George Bevan, Nicholas Burt, Mark Smith and Eddie Jones.
The orchestra welcomes new players, especially in the string section.(No
audition necessary but grade 7 or above recommended). Rehearsals are held on Monday
nights (8pm-9.30pm) during the three school terms with a
concert towards the end of each term.
