An early Christmas present for the orchestra
December 9th 2017
Wirral Community Orchestra has been awarded £1000 from the Liverpool Empire Trust, which celebrates 150 years of providing live theatre entertainment in the city of Liverpool. As part of the celebration, £20,000 in grants of up to £2000 were offered to amateur arts groups. The orchestra applied for funding for new music stand covers so that our performances can have that little extra professional appearances! On December 9th, Lesley, Richard and Vicky went to an awards ceremony at the theatre to receive the cheque. A big thank you to the trust from all of our players. We will send a photograph of the orchestra at our summer concert when we hope to have some new covers complete with our logo.
Braving the cold once again a small group from the orchestra provided some Christmas music for the shoppers in Liverpool One whilst collecting for this very worthwhile cause.
We welcome all players irrespective of age or instrument or musical standard to come and enjoy making music with us.
