New orchestra on the hunt for members

Stratford Editorial 28th Sep, 2016 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016

A NEW orchestra is looking for members to help hit all the right notes.

Stratford Festival Orchestra tries to make music fun by playing whatever they like – from David Bowie and Led Zeppelin to musicals and some classical.

And now they are looking for new members to join ahead of shows and projects in December and early next year. So far they have held several performances which have all sold out.

A spokeswoman said: “We want players of all ages and abilities, particularly those who play strings or brass.

“We don’t set out to be an overly serious symphony orchestra. We play anything from some rock to a touch of Bach.

“But if you are only into heavy classical music we are probably not for you.

“We particularly want to tempt back to music those who used to play some time ago but have lost the reason to get back into it. If you want to regularly play to full audiences and have a lot of fun then come and join us.”

Th orchestra practice every Monday night at 7pm in Stratford.
