The People’s Orchestra is a charity-run community orchestra based in West Bromwich in the West Midlands and it’s on the look out for new members.
They are not fussy about your age but you need to be trained up to grade 7 standard. They’re not going to scrutinise certificates, though; if your sight reading is OK you’ll probably get in.
Here is their call-out:
The charity run orchestra is locally funded and looking for musicians trained to a grade 7 with an interest to play film scores, as well as popular music, with a view to expanding their talent in a fun and inexpensive way.
The organisation was founded in 2012 by Sarah Marshall and horn teacher Andrew Sandham and their vision was to bridge the gap between amateur and professional orchestral players. A gateway for people who may not have the time or commitment to join a professional orchestra, the People’s Orchestra now have over 70 members and have performed several concerts across the Midlands. There’s certain to be something for everyone to enjoy!
It doesn’t matter if you haven’t played for years, the orchestra would still love to meet you. It may be that you have played in the past or gave up your instrument after school; either way come and join in. Many of our current players hadn’t played for 10 to 15 years.
