The Awkwardstra was established in 2014 as an eclectic group consisting of a couple of violins, a viola, a saxophone, a harp, even a harmonica and has now settled into an ever growing strings and woodwind chamber group. Driven by the enthusiasm of our maestro Daemon Clark, this adult orchestra is always welcoming of new players and regularly braves public performances busking at markets and performing for family and friends.

Favourite pieces currently are Faure’s PavaneBach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. 3The Beatles Eleanor RigbyRossini’s The Barber of Seville and Telemann’s Les Nations.

The ‘Awks’ meet from mid-January all the way through to mid-December at Victoria Park Community Centre, East Victoria Park on Wednesday nights, 7.30pm until 9.30pm. For more information visit our How Do I Join page or email us at: and you will be directed to the Awkwardstra Coordinator.
