I Love West Leeds Arts Festival | The Citizens Orchestra
The Citizens Orchestra.
The Citizens are the festival house band. We didnt know we needed a house band until the Citizens came along, but we fell in love with them and they are here to stay as long as we do. Formed for the 2009 Festival they rehearse every Monday at Interplay in Armley under the guiding hands of musicians Harry Hamer and Adam Smith. The Citizens are open to any musician over 60, there are no auditions, if you want in, you're in.
