THE skills of a remarkable orchestra will be on show in Birchencliffe tomorrow (December 17)
Members of the West Yorkshire Deaf Youth Orchestra will play at a Christmas fair organised by the Huddersfield-based charity, Music And The Deaf.
The charity is a unique organisation which helps people of all ages with a hearing loss to access music and the arts.
It has worked with thousands of people through workshops, educational projects, talks and signed theatrical performances.
The orchestra was set up four years ago and provides deaf young people an opportunity to learn musical instruments, to play within a group, to perform at our concerts and to make new friends.
It will be doing all of that at St Philip’s Parish Community Centre Church Hall as part of the charity’s Christmas fair.
The event runs from 10.30am until 1pm and will help raise funds for Music and the Deaf. There will be a raffle, tombola, games with prizes and stalls selling DVDs, books, cakes and many more.
The Music and the Deaf team and members of the Deaf Youth Orchestra will provide music which should get everyone into the festive spirit.
The orchestra is currently offering places for beginners and players with any level of musical experience.
If you have a child with a hearing loss who would like to join why not go along tomorrow and see what the orchestra is all about.
