Louise Brothers 1951 – 1968

“The desire of the Music Council to provide facilities for Ensemble playing for those who have left school has resulted in the formation of “The Second Westmorland Orchestra”. This body was formed in January and it is hoped that it will develop into a reasonably complete orchestra as time goes on. Members are encouraged to attend the rehearsals of the Westmorland Orchestra itself, and such of them as are found competent, after audition, will be allowed to take part in these rehearsals. The conductorship and training of this Second Westmorland Orchestra are in the capable hands of Mrs. L. D. Brothers. ”
