Kaleidoscope Orchestra

We welcome the Kaleidoscope Orchestra to Bubwith Sports and Leisure Centre. Rehearsals will be starting October 14th, Thursday during the evening and each Thursday forwards. Take a look at their Facebook page for more details.

Kaleidoscope is an ALL age, ALL abilities and ALL instrument inclusive Orchestra.

From Musical Director and Conductor, Mrs Helen Higson “It began as a 10 week trial in 2009 with 18 people and now has a membership of 63, aged 8-85. We have orchestral instruments plus guitars, saxophones and recorders. Our members are both children and adult beginners, adults who learned as children and have dusted off their instruments, through to post-grade 8 members, one of whom plays with the European Doctors Orchestra and another who is studying harp at The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland – Kaleidoscope Orchestra is a fun place to be!

We play a variety of music, from ‘Dance Macabre’ to ‘Beauty and the Beast’, ‘Finlandia’ and a ‘Queen’ medley currently in the repertoire. Music is written to accommodate all abilities.

We rehearse on Thursday evenings from 7.30pm – 8.45pm, with a break-in the middle for a quick cuppa and a biscuit – somehow we always play better after a pit stop! Membership Fee equates to just £2 per week! First week is free.

Kaleidoscope members are a very friendly bunch who enjoy helping each other with their music and instruments. Why not come along and join us? We are now rehearsing at Bubwith Leisure and Sports Centre – with their fabulous new acoustic panels! Drop Helen a text or email to let her know you are coming and to be sure there is some music for you.

Want to see what we are about first? Come along to our Christmas Concert at Howden Senior School on Thursday 19th December, 7pm or arrange with Helen to come and watch a rehearsal at the Bubwith Centre.
