From first meeting to debut performance!

From 23rd October 2018 to 30th November 2018, we made the journey from a group of strangers to a fully fledged performing orchestra - that's just 6 weeks' practice! The first rehearsal... When Tony (keyboard) and Ed (musical director) decided to form an orchestra, they didn't know what to expect. So it must have been really pleasing to see around fourteen people show up for the first rehearsal. Everyone was a bit nervous - we were nearly all strangers - and we had quite a broad range of experience within the group. It was a bit like the first day at school! We'd had the music to practice for about a month beforehand so it was really exciting to go from practicing at home alone to playing with a room full of about fourteen other musicians - you could see the excitement on Ed's face when he heard the first bars of his arrangements being played back to him by a group of strangers. Practice, practice, practice You could really hear the sound develop each week as we star

While most of us were enjoying our summer holidays, our musical director Edward had been hard at work arranging our latest new pieces... On Her Majesty's Secret Service We already have Mission Impossible in our repertoire, so it's exciting to add another classic theme tune. Composed by John Barry, this is the only Bond theme which is completely instrumental and I think it sounded pretty good during our first run through. We Have All The Time In The World This ballad was featured in th
