The WPO is fortunate to own, or have special access to, an extensive collection of orchestral sets, including one of the largest selections of classic British Light Music in the country. Many of these sets are now available for hire.


The WPO accumulated a large number of orchestral sets, whilst run under the auspices of Worthing Borough Council.  This collection is now owned and curated independently by Marcus Martin Music (although the WPO retains special access), as the Alassio Orchestral Library, and contains many rarely performed pieces of British Light Music alongside much of the standard orchestral repertoire. 


To hire works from the collection, and for further information, please visit Marcus Martin Music HERE
For information about sets owned directly by the Worthing Philharmonic Orchestra, please contact our Head Librarian, HERE
