Our orchestra for the whole family

'The orchestra is open to all and any of the Music Box community who would like to play: music making within families is central to our beliefs. We aim to have concerts twice a year. We give you your part ahead of time and then come together to rehearse 2 or 3 weeks before each concert, learning from and supporting each other along the way.

We currently boast several violinists and cellists, a viola player, a cornet player, 2 horn players, several recorder players, a bassoonist and a flautist! We firmly believe that there should be more opportunities for us all to make music together, across the ages, welcoming beginners as well as the more experienced.

'Thank you for offering this great opportunity for adults and children to play together and to communicate through music. My children loved the choice of pieces! The experience inspired them so much that they started their own band with Frieda being the conductor. They have rehearsed almost every day.'
