The orchestra started in 1937 on Midsummer Day in Denmark. Different people from smaller towns in the Municipality around Nykøbing Sjælland who played instruments where gathered. They made a quick decision and the orchestra was started. Today the orchestra has 35 members who are from 18 to 75 years old.
Several times a year the orchestra plays concerts in- and outside. 2015 was a very busy year with 22 bigger and smaller concerts in and outside the municipality. Several times the orchestra has been abroad. Luxemburg, Belgium, Germany, France and Sweden have been visited. Three times the orchestra has been invited to Norway to the national day, the 17th of May. Years ago the orchestra has recorded a Christmas CD. Conductor is Ole Andersen.
