Windsor Community Orchestra

2020 Summer Concert raised money despite lockdown

Due to the Covid-19 situation, the orchestra has not been meeting physically, but we have been keeping virtual rehearsals going during the lock-down This culminated in a virtual concert held just for members of the orchestra. There were many solos, from bass saxophone, glockenspiel, cello, and violin. Then the orchestra played along to sections from Beethoven's 5th Symphony, and listened to Teddy's Bear Picnic, made up of individual recordings put together by the orchestra over the term and brought together into one performance.

Our concerts have always been about community music, fun and charity, and we didn't want to miss out of any of that just because of the lock-down. So members of the orchestra donated money towards a charity. £575 was raised by members of the orchestra, and this will go towards the West Windsor Hub, helping people suffering isolation and hardship during this crisis.
