WELCOME to a new name for old friends…
The Chris Irvin Concert Orchestra has been launched!

Formerly known as The New White Rose Orchestra the group aims to reach broadly-based audiences who appreciate accessible, tuneful music.

Audiences who enjoy the best in light classical music may have heard performances over the years in a theatre, a church or church hall, an open garden, a shopping mall, a care home or a community centre.  Skilled musicians, led by Robert Thorlby and conducted by Musical Director and composer Christopher Irvin, have united regularly to share a growing repertoire and enhance their expertise.
