The Gustav Holst Community Orchestra started life as a chamber orchestra at the Mary Ward Adult Education Centre, one of the original conductors of which was Gustav Holst.
Holst and Vaughan Williams (who was also frequently seen as a viola player within the orchestra) were committed to community music making and we continue their commitment to help people who are embarking on their music making journey to develop the skills required to play with confidence within an ensemble in a fun and supportive atmosphere.
