Either leave instrument cases in the car or there will be trolleys available. There will not be any bag packing this year. Parents coming to support, please do not block the area in front of the players, so we can invite donations from the public.

The string group (EASTO) is conducted by Sue Leonard, assisted by Jo Leonard.
The wind group (EAWO) conducted by Gabrielle Horne, assisted by Sarah Finch.

Both groups take players from approximately stage / grade one upwards. We have regular concerts at the end of each term at Thornden.
