    Junior Hines
    It is with great sadness and sense of profound loss that we record the death of our dear friend and founder member Adolph "Junior" Hines who battled long and hard against Covid-19 but who succumbed on 14th April. Our thoughts go to his family and many friends in music here and in Jamaica. Our thanks go to his dedicated care team in the hospital who worked so hard on his behalf. He was a co-creator of Peace which we play regularly and which will always remind us of his contribution to our music and which you can listen to on our Soundcloud link. Rest in perfect peace Junior.
  • Covid-19 update
  •  Date Posted: Wed, 25 Mar 2020
    Hi everybody. You won't be surprised to know that we have had to stop all rehearsals and cancel all planned perfromances during the current emergency.
    Orchestra members will be working hard on individual practice and working remotely to be sure we will be able to re-start in full voice as soon as we can.
    Please give some thought and support (including financial where you can) to all workers in the creative arts sector whose careers and enterprises are on hold indefinitely. Stay strong!!
