Desmond and Joanna Bazley set up the Community Orchestra in 2005. Mr Bazley died in 2015 but when he had become aware that he had not long to live he had taken steps to ensure the future of the Community Orchestra by setting up a Charitable Trust Fund (registered charity number 1160016).

The Dundonald Musical trust was established 'to advance the musical education of the children by providing experience of musical ensemble and the opportunity to perform in concerts'. The Trust employs a conductor, Joan Child and a pianist, Emma Hawksley and has a large team of adult helpers (new volunteers are always welcome).

Parents may wish to make a donation to the Dundonald Musical trust to ensure its valuable work continues. Cheques can be made out to 'The Dundonald Musical Trust' or money can be transferred to the NatWest bank, Sort Code 602406, Account No. 87514761.
