Orchestra on the Hill

Orchestra on the Hill

The Orchestra on the Hill is the combined orchestra of Churchill, Fitzwilliam, Murray Edwards, Magdalene, Girton, Robinson, St Edmund's and Lucy Cavendish colleges.

Student-run, the orchestra exists to promote good musicianship among members of Churchill, Fitzwilliam, Murray Edwards, Magdalene, Girton, Robinson, St Edmund's and Lucy Cavendish Colleges and the wider University who are interested in performing orchestral music.

We also aim to support the University's core values by promoting the cultural life of the University in the wider academic and local community.

The orchestra has built up an enviable reputation for innovative programming, as well as playing some core popular repertoire.

Our recent concerts have included Saint-Saëns' Cello Concerto, Borodin's Polovtsian Dances, Dvorak's Hussite Overture, Beethoven's Third Symphony, Mozart's clarinet concerto, Corelli's Christmas concerto and Sibelius's Karelia Suite, and packed out Murray Edwards' Dome, Fitzwilliam's Auditorium and Churchill's Wolfson Hall.
