The show must virtually go on


AN ORCHESTRA did not let lockdown stop them from creating a performance to mark what would have been their June concert.

Rotherham Symphony Orchestra put together a virtual concert which will premiere on its Facebook page.

The orchestra was established in 2017 to give the town a professional standard orchestra that would showcase the rich musical talent it has and to offer young musicians a pathway of learning that leads to elite level.

Since its first Proms in the Park concert in Clifton Park in September of that year, the orchestra has gone from strength to strength.

Members have performed in venues around the borough including Rotherham Minster and at Wentworth Woodhouse \!a in the famous Marble Saloon.

The orchestra has also been featured live on BBC’s regional Look North evening programme.
