COVID-19 Virus Statement

We want to be pro-active to ensure that no one in our orchestra, their family members, friends and indeed our audiences are put at any risk of infection. Like many community based arts groups, we have taken the view that we will monitor how the virus progresses and to embrace 'social distancing' as a guiding principle. We will continue to look at the latest government heath advice and review the position on a regular basis.

The South Surrey and White Rock Chamber of Commerce have selected White Rock Community Orchestra as a nominee for the prestigious Business Excellence Awards in the category of: Supporter of the Arts Business of the Year. This is only the second year that the awards have been opened to non Chamber members because The Chamber want the event to be a celebration of the diverse and growing business community in which we live. There has been so much enthusiasm and support for the awards that they were overwhelmed with responses.
