The objectives/aims of the Westbourne Orchestral Society are to:
· promote and help popularise classical music by the presentation of concerts, normally six per year, and thereby providing education in the art and science of music,
· provide a means by which musicians of various grades of competence can share the joy of making music together,
· form its playing members into a symphony orchestra to encourage musical talent and appreciation and
· raise funds for various charities.
