WSSO Trust Training Ensembles Showcase

Featuring West String Orchestra Directed by David O’Connell and West Training Band Directed by Michelle McCabe.

Season 2024 marks the 10th since the launch of the West training ensembles, the String Orchestra and Training Band, in 2015. This season once again, we can enjoy a remarkable range of string orchestra and concert band repertoire played by 150 talented young musicians drawn from the 12 partner local authorities of the former Strathclyde region. 

Join us for a wonderful afternoon of entertainment and some astonishment that the musicians on stage are school pupils aged 11-15 years. You will be amazed at the maturity and refinement of the performances given by these fantastic young people.

Programme to include:

Training Band: The Great Locomotive Chase (Robert W Smith), Jitterbug (Robert Buckley) & Mazama (Jay Chattaway)

String Orchestra: Rhosymedre (RV Williams), The Bird Fancyer's Delight (Philip Wilby) & Romance in C op.42 (Jean Sibelius)
