The orchestra at a concert

Welcome to the New Edinburgh Orchestra

Welcome to the New Edinburgh Orchestra web pages! We are a friendly amateur orchestra of around 80 players based in Edinburgh, Scotland and conducted by Tim Paxton. We are a member of Making Music: the National Federation of Music Societies.

We rehearse on Tuesday evenings and perform three concerts a year. Our repertoire includes new music, including several works commissioned by the NEO, along with a variety of more familiar classical pieces.

We welcome enquiries from potential new members – players usually join for a trial period, and for some principal positions an audition may be required. If you are interested in joining the orchestra, there is a short form you can use to contact us.
