 About the Orchestra

The Orchestra aims to raise awareness and reduce the stigma around mental illness, especially within the Blue Light community. We are delighted to support the Mind Blue Light Programme. Playing and listening to music is a great way to boost your mental wellbeing and we would encourage anyone to take up an instrument or join a choir. 

We meet for a day long workshops once a term and have several other events planned for the next 12 months including:

  • Recording a charity single at the world famous Abbey Road Studios
  • Forming our own charity in aid of mental health in the emergency services
  • Charity Gala

Please go to the Join us! page if you would like to get involved.
