Each Open School Orchestra (OSO) expresses the unique personal journeys made by each of the players, and how they've developed as a group. Writing and performing music can be a powerful agent of change. The two OSOs at Pencalenick and Richard Lander have many individual stories of musical, social and emotional development over the year. This film gives an example - with some short clips showing Zakir's journey.

This project is run by Cornwall Music Service Trust, with funding from Cornwall Music Education Hub, and Youth Music. You can find out more about Open School Orchestras at:
