About the Orchestra

The Westcliff Collection prides itself on its careful planning of concert programmes, resisting the temptation to only play popular well known music, but to give the audience, and its players, something more... hopefully our concerts will be an education and a bit of a treat to a lot of people who may be hearing great music for the first time.

There is a lot of music, that is sadly relatively unknown, and it can often be difficult persuading people to come and hear something new. The Director of Music therefore spends time arranging programmes so that there is hopefully something well known in each concert, and something with a new flavour. We want you to enjoy the works you know and love, but also leave having perhaps experienced sounds less familiar.
