The Orchestra on the Hill
The Orchestra on the Hill

Welcome to the homepage of the combined orchestra of Churchill, Fitzwilliam, Murray Edwards, Magdalene, Girton, Robinson, St Edmund's and Lucy Cavendish colleges, also known as the Orchestra on the Hill! Here you will find up to date details of all our forthcoming concerts, as well as information on how to buy tickets or join the orchestra.

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 Mozart's Double Violin Concerto, Beethoven Symphony No. 1, Handel's Messiah, Sibelius Valse Triste, and Shostakovich Cello concerto in Eb Major, and we have packed out Murray Edwards' Dome, Fitzwilliam's Auditorium and Churchill's Wolfson Hall.
