The Romsey Area Schools' Orchestras (RASO) are a pyramid of ensembles, which cater for the musical needs of the young people of Romsey and the surrounding area.
Opportunities for all
Playing together is a great social, as well as educational, activity. The Orchestras provide instrumentalists with a range of opportunities to further their musical education in an ensemble setting.
RASO members are friendly and welcoming and although the primary focus of the ensembles is musical, there is a strong social aspect to the groups. The Concert Band starts each academic year with a Residential course at Avon Tyrrell in the New Forest.
Out and About
RASO ensembles perform in a range of venues across the County and beyond, touring in France and Germany, summer 2011 and Ireland in October 2012.
