About Phoenix Strings

We are a friendly orchestra of adult string players meeting weekly in Thornton-Cleveleys. We welcome anyone who has taken up a string instrument or perhaps returned to playing after some time, and wants an opportunity to make music with others and work towards performances.

We were founded in 2007 by John Foster, a well known professional violinist, teacher and conductor, who recognised the gap in provision for opportunities for adult string players, more specifically returners or late starters. Under John's guidance the orchestra  has developed and flourished, undertaking many musical challenges.

Our existing members are from many backgrounds and a range of standards up to diploma. The music we play is selected by John the Musical Director. Public performance is a key focus of the orchestra and we aim to perform at least two concerts each year. 

Rehearsals are held every Wednesday  7-9pm at All Saints Church, Anchorsholme, Cleveleys, FY5 3HT.
