• The opportunity for 70+ young people every year to be part of a close family of musicians, learning life skills including team working and communication and creating lifelong musical friendships.
• The opportunity to perform in a professional concert hall to a discerning audience and to be featured as a performance in the seasonal brochures of WMC.
