The SCCOA was co-founded in 1992 by Michelle Bruce and Tom Kershaw who had an inclusive philosophy to put musicians of all levels together to make great music. Enthusiasm for the music resulted in formation of Concert Band and development ensembles.

Our orchestra and the band rehearse weekly and members' fees are the main financial support.  However we also benefit from grants and donations from  the private and business communities.

​We are getting back to normal after a few difficult years due to Covid  and we welcome players of all band and orchestral instruments.
