‘Here in South Gloucestershire, we offer individual, small group and whole class vocal and instrumental teaching in schools for thousands of children a week. Our music centres provide an excellent progression pathway to develop ensemble playing. Anyone is welcome to join. We run a variety of singing workshops in primary and secondary schools. We create memorable events such as our Carol Service at Clifton Cathedral and our Gala Concert at the Colston Hall. We work in partnership with organisations such as the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and the National Youth Jazz Orchestra. The South Gloucestershire Music Hub serves to create the very best opportunities for children and young people to get involved in music making.’

‘The Orchestra has grown rapidly since it was founded in November 2002 by a group of local amateur musicians who wanted to provide an opportunity for local enthusiasts to play together in an ensemble and as a way for young people to gain their first experiences of orchestral playing ... The orchestra now draws players from across South Gloucestershire and beyond and includes musicians of all ages and from all walks of life ... and performs two to three concerts a year, often in support of local charities. The orchestra does not hold formal auditions but players need to be of a good standard and wishing to improve.’
