HISTORY OF THE ORCHESTRA
The City of Truro Wind Orchestra (CoTWO) was formed by Lesley and Gerald Adye in the Autumn of 1997, led at first by Mr. John Greaves. In the years since, the orchestra has gone from strength to strength, performing in prestigious locations such as the Hall for Cornwall, and entering the National Concert Band Festival on more than one occasion, winning Gold awards at regional level competition and Silver and Bronze awards at national level competition.
We are a truly community-based orchestra, with people of all ages participating from across the county. We regularly perform at local venues across Cornwall, including Truro Cathedral, Falmouth Methodist Church, Padstow Harbour and St. Michael's Mount, amongst others.
Currently, the orchestra is under leadership of our musical director and conductor Mr. David Hendry.
