The orchestra in rehearsal at the Colosseum in 2007

Welcome to the Clarendon Orchestra website.

The Orchestra was set up in 1983 and included Watford School of Music Youth Orchestra members, ex-members and guest players most of whom were professional or studying music full time.

The Orchestra was conducted by Adrian Leaper who was the resident conductor at The WSM. Under his baton the group has performed Mahler Symphonies 1 and 3, The Planets by Holst and Rite of Spring by Stravinsky. At its largest, the Orchestra was 130 strong. The orchestra stopped performing in 1987. Thanks to the inspiration of Bill Pamplin and the efforts a few of the ex-members, the orchestra reformed in 2004.
