This year the Orchestra comes to Port Elizabeth, and their rehearsals begin in earnest on 30 June, under the baton of Port Elizabeth born, Old Grey scholar, David Scarr. Musicians pictured from left to right: Sashen Naidoo (Trumpet), Khayalethu Bashman (Trombone) and Robert Shellard (oboe).  Far left is Grey’s Director of Music, Shawn Lyon, who is also one of the Orchestra’s selectors and instructors.
