New orchestra for Lewisham 

I was lucky enough to conduct a brand new orchestra set up in Lewisham over half term. The Lewisham Junior Orchestra aims to provide access to orchestral playing opportunities for primary and secondary pupils in the borough, coming together during the school holidays. On this course, pupils played Tim Steiner’s PLAY, as well as Grieg’s In the Hall of the Mountain King (one of the BBC’s ‘Ten Pieces’).
