OUR STORY

At The People’s Orchestra we like to challenge tradition and do things a little differently, to see what happens. We believe that if people challenge themselves, reach for their goals and believe in what they are doing, they can change their lives and the lives of those around them for the better.

 

By providing the right setting, we are able to help people build their self-confidence and skills, whilst supporting their overall well being. We accomplish all of this through hosting great live music performances.

TESTIMONIALS

I’ve played the saxophone with The People's Orchestra for 2 years. I was looking for a high standard, community-based orchestra for the chance to meet new people and share my love of music. The People's Orchestra definitely fit the bill! I have made friends for life, have had the opportunity to play fantastic music and be part of some unique and exciting projects.

I’ve played viola with The People’s Orchestra since the very beginning. There is such a special camaraderie and such a 'wow' factor at our concerts. The People’s Orchestra has added greatly to my life in the last four years.

I've played the cello for almost 15 years and played with The People’s Orchestra for two years now. I've played in a few different orchestras now and I have to say that TPO is by far THE best I've had the chance to play with! There's a very strong bond amongst the whole of the orchestra. I couldn’t have met a nicer bunch to share my passion and play with!

The People's Orchestra epitomises genuine equality of opportunity, whereby musicians from every socio-economic and ethnic background, from teens to seniors, come together to share the joy of music making with one another, and with their ever-increasing audiences in live performance. Already the orchestra has created wide ranging opportunities for its members, and the logical next step is that it should foster new composers, who in developing their skills and experience will create new repertoire which is unique to the most unique aggregation. In my four decades as a professional musician I have rarely worked in such a rewarding environment. Every town and city should have a People's Orchestra.

Incredible day, thank you all. My son Mark sat with the flute section. We both had an incredible time with you all. Special thanks goes to the percussion section who allowed Mark to play with you all. Special memories made today, I can't thank you enough.

I have played in more concerts than I can count. I have played in one of the world’s greatest concert halls, I have played for momentous occasions, and I have played more than my fair share of the most beautiful music ever written. But today, I played the most memorable concert of my life, and it was in West Bromwich Town Hall. With TPO.
