Funder experience

“We ran a very successful, if small scale project, setting up the Worcestershire Waits, initially for two years.

“From the very start, Cathy Dew and Micaela Schmitz were the two principal musical leaders. Thanks to their drive and commitment the project was very successful.

“One of our tutors, Andy Watts, helped us to establish a very useful connection with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, where he is a bassoonist.”

Alan Smith, former advisor for Music at Worcestershire County Council


Student experience

“Before the initial workshop, I’d never had an experience of playing renaissance and baroque music and I was keen to give it a try.”

Alexis Hutchinson, Worcester Waits member 2007
