Band in a Van




At Alina Orchestra we believe ‘Music is for everyone’ and as part of our dedication to the community, Alina has created ‘Band in a Van’.

Band in a Van is a small group that travels to the heart of communities to perform interactive events for those that, for whatever reason, cannot attend our main concert series and where the audience is part of the event! The group perform anything from Disney to classical music, encouraging audiences to shake percussion, sing along, take part in body percussion or even conduct the group. It is great fun, with a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. Our group play a range of music to enthuse, excite and entertain everyone watching with the aim of helping to connect participants with their local community and the many benefits of music, plus have fun!

‘..we would not have been able to afford to watch the musical orchestras in town. This was amazing..’ audience member, Micklefield Library
