Virtuoso Strings

From Standing Room Only, 1:35 pm on 21 February 2016

Every Tuesday night, Porirua children from low-decile schools get together in a school hall to play classical music on borrowed instruments.  The Virtuoso Strings Charitable Trust works with local schools, as well as other organisations that provide food and other invaluable contributions needed to keep the orchestra going.  But it survives thanks to the drive of music teachers Liz Sneyd and Craig Utting. Lynn Freeman was invited to the orchestra's rehearsal.
