THE WALLFISCH BAND
Inspire . Entertain . Educate
The Wallfisch Band has, after 8 good years, had to DisBand.
It is with deep regret that I write this.
IT is no longer functioning as an project based orchestra. The
information will remain online for a while yet perhaps as an example to
others wishing to do something similar. It has been a tremendous
success in every way, and our educational, and performance goals
have been reached, and
However the Masterclass
is ALIVE and WELL, with the aim to:
- to inspire the next generation of performers
- to entertain audiences around the world
- to educate young professional musicians at the start of their careers...and
- to give our audiences a really fine 'NIGHT OUT'

This is an electric mix, and makes for wonderful concerts!
