Julia is a key part of the orchestra and makes sure everything is well organised in her role as Music Librarian. This involves the preparation and distribution of all music (there is reams and reams of it!) for the orchestra’s and show choir’s concerts and events. She also ensures everyone is up to date by managing orchestra communications. Community inclusion is an important part of the orchestra’s values and Julia is a great role model for this by running a weekly ‘Knit and Natter’ group where all are welcome.
“Before coming to work for The People’s Orchestra I had difficulty finding suitable employment. I suffer from the eye condition Keratoconus. and have vision problems that are difficult to correct. Working with the orchestra has helped me sustain regular employment, to begin with as a volunteer and now as a member of staff, doing something that I really enjoy”.
