Much has been written about the decline of sport in schools. Music has suffered an even more catastrophic decline, being forced out of the curriculum by the results and targets mania. For those who believe that education is about more than acquiring skills for employment purposes this is a disaster. Knowing how tp play an instrument can be a lifelong source of pleasure.
This is the thinking behind the Peoples Orchestra a new community orchestra based at The Public in West Bromwich and which is looking for members. If you play an instrument (up to Grade 7 or thereabouts) you are wanted! Auditions are being held In September and October so why not come along?
