The People’s Orchestra is an independent charity and one of the UK’s leading community orchestras, encompassing a committed and talented blend of amateur and professional musicians. With a varied repertoire of classical and popular pieces from film, TV, etc, their performances attract a high percentage of new audiences who have never seen an orchestra play live before. Through a successful ‘Steps to Work’ programme, The People's Orchestra has also been able to help 120 local people into paid employment in a range of areas such as administration, finance, design, marketing, and event management, and were a Charity of the Year finalist 2015 in the Black Country Chamber of Commerce Awards.
