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.
