Carinas Musici Orchestra was established in 1996, with a handful of children practising as one huge mixed ensemble. Soon under the careful care, guidance and expertise of founding member, Ms. Carina Brown the numbers grew rapidly & the various ensemble groups started to participate in local events and Eisteddfods. Towards the end of August 2013, the West Coast Youth Orchestra, 132-992 NPO was registered.
