The All Age Orchestra, which is the 8th choir and ensemble run by the Trust, will launch on January 8.

Rehearsals will then take place fortnightly at St Dionysius Community Hall, in Coventry Road, Harborough from 7.30-9.30pm.

The orchestra will be playing a range of music including film and television themes, well-known classics and folk songs.

They are recruiting brass, wind, string and percussion musicians of Grade 4 standard or higher.
