Sarah Marshall is the Founder, Artistic and Managing Director of The People’s Show Choir, The People’s Orchestra and The Rusty Players Orchestra.
Founded with a principle wish to keep people playing music, Sarah grew an initially small ensemble into The People’s Orchestra, one of the UK’s leading community orchestras, in just a few short years. Sarah set out to prove that orchestras and choirs can be set up, ran differently and still wow audiences with a high standard of performance.
Since then, The People’s Orchestra has expanded to include a team of volunteers aiding with the back-office roles such as marketing, administration, and graphical design. The charity has gone on to help hundreds of people back into paid employment, education or on to set up their own businesses, all in one of the most deprived areas of England.
