The members of the Orchestra come from a range of ages, backgrounds and instrumental experience. There are often times where what they are being asked to learn is extremely challenging. There are times when the individual parts do not sound particularly pleasant!
However children quickly learn that in the Orchestra they are part of a team working towards a common goal, rather than individual gain. They learn that through hard work, determination and teamwork, they will achieve something truly rewarding and extremely good fun… making wonderful music!
