25th Anniversary  - On Saturday November 13th 2010, the Orchestra celebrated its 25th anniversary at the Guildhall in Stockport. A trawl through our records identified that 101 young players had played in the senior orchestra since 1985 when Bill and Jean Syzling founded the group. We may have lost track of many players but through the friendships that have been forged and the wide appeal of Facebook, we managed to gather 67 to come along and join in the fun,and especially to see how much they could remember. When the Orchestra was set up, one of the aims was to help raise money for the Royal Manchester Children's Hospital Bone Marrow and Stem Cell Trust when playing in shopping centres in the north-west. By the time of the anniversary we had raised over £40,000 for this cause and a cheque for the current year's collections, was presented to Peter Bramhall who set the charity up in the same year as the Orchestra. If any players have any more great portrait snaps from the evening please let us have them to post with those below.
