Welcome to our shiny new website! We have an exciting year ahead so do keep checking this page to see what we're up to. Thanks to the folks at Help Musicians UK who run the Peter Whittingham Award, we have been given £5000 funding which is really going to help take our plans for the orchestra to the next level. We're setting up our own night called 'Patchwork' which is very exciting, and plans for an album are in the pipeline too. Meanwhile, take a look round the new site and find out who we are and what we're all about.
On another note we were very pleased recently to be invited to play at the 25th anniversary celebration of the Peter Whittingham award at Kings Place in London, hosted by Julian Joseph. It was a great evening with performances also from past winners of the award Soweto Kinch and Stretch Trio. Here is a photo taken from our set, in what appears to be Sam Rapley full steam ahead mid solo. Nice.
