New orchestra is one of a kind

Musicians are being sought for a new community orchestra which is being launched in Belper.

The group, which is the only one of its type in the town, is looking for adults of all abilities to play everything from Bach to modern music.

Founder Nicky Ellis was inspired to set-up the project after watching a BBC documentary about a Brazillian orchestra visiting Scotland.

Along with musical director Dana Dewal she will be welcoming new members to Strutts Community Centre on October 5 at 7.30pm. For information ring 01332 840646.
