The Welsh Chamber Orchestra

We have been extremely lucky to get this chamber orchestra for Curry Rivel! For more information, have a look at their website, at https://welshchamberorchestra.co.uk/about-2/.

The Orchestra was founded in 1986 and has performed with many of the world’s greatest soloists, undertaken several European concert tours and performed throughout the UK.
