Orchestra ONE

Music Centre

Ashford Music Centre







Upcoming Project:

Project 34: Funfair!

28 – 31 May | Highworth School, Ashford

Orchestra ONE… the Orchestra of New Experiences…. is a large ensemble for young musicians between the ages of 11 and 18.

Members of Orchestra ONE come from a wide range of musical backgrounds and create their own original music during each four day project.  Every project offers a new experience influenced by changing themes, collaborations and specialist tutor teams but most importantly by the young musicians’ own interests, styles and instrumentation. Participants range from long term members to newcomers which ensures support and renewal as Orchestra ONE continues to develop.
