The orchestra was formed in 1992 by the late Ron Walker to raise money for the Chest, Heart and Stroke Foundation in honour of his late father. Ron developed the orchestra over 20 years and conducted up until his own ill health forced him to take a step back in 2014. The orchestra has raised thousands of pounds for charity over the years because of the hard work of its committee and members.
The Orchestra is proud to have Mary, Dowager Countess of Strathmore as its Honorary President.
The members of the Orchestra generally come from the Tayside region, coming from as far afield as Montrose to Aberfeldy and Cupar to Brechin.
