History of the WCO

The Windsor Community Orchestra started up in 2004. It has been doing 3 concerts a year since then. Each concert includes 6 or 7 orchestral pieces, and also features solos and smaller groups made up of members of the orchestra. These have been as diverse as a brass duet, an accordion solo and a jazz trio.

News from the orchestra

2016 Autumn term

Our Autumn term came to an end with a really good Christmas concert We played some light music as befits as well as Christmas standards, ending with some rousing singing with a Christmas Carol. We also raised quite a bit for charity whilst doing so. A great way to say hello to the season!
