"We passionately believe in the power of orchestral music to move, entertain and most importantly bring people together. We want as many people as possible, from every part of our community, to experience live orchestral music and to take part in music-making. Its a commonly used cliche to say music enhances and even changes peoples lives, but we see it happen. Every penny raised is directed towards this goal." Jason Thornton, Music Director, Bath Philharmonia
