A COMMUNITY youth orchestra initiative is to be launched in Humphrey Park Community Centre, Urmston, on January 11.

The orchestra will be aimed at youngsters between the ages of 7 to 16 and is being set up by music teacher Helen Adams.

It will welcome complete beginners up to players of grade three standard, to introduce as many people as possible to making music and having fun.

Sessions will take place from 4 to 5pm every Monday. For further information Helen can be contacted on 07437.436115 or at helensmusicschool@gmail.com.
