A concert held by the Ealing Wind Orchestra recently has raised £518 for Ealing Food Bank.

The event was held last Saturday (11 May) at the University of West London with musicians and guest conductors from the university also performing in the Weston Hall.

The orchestra’s Musical Director Dave Gordon-Shute conducted a programme including music from Earth, Wind and Fire and local composer Liz Sharma.

There was no charge for entry with the money raised by donations from the audience at the end of the performance.

If you are interested in joining the Ealing Wind Orchestra, woodwind (including saxophones), brass (including euphoniums) and percussion players are needed. The best contact to use is ealingwindorchestra@gmail.com.
