Margaret Hine 1948 – 1951

“In January the Council started the Westmorland Junior Orchestra to provide wider facilities for young instrumentalists and afford them opportunities for ensemble playing. The intention is for those attending and after leaving school. The conductor and trainer is Miss Margaret Hine, and the Orchestra meets weekly during term time at the Castle Street School, Kendal, for which accommodation the Council is indebted to the Education Authority. This orchestra is proving a great success and already has over 40 regular members; the progress made under Miss Hine’s able and sympathetic conductorship is remarkable.”
