Bold as Brass
Community music projects always spread harmony… don’t they?
When players in Stockwell Park Orchestra fear they may be getting out of touch with their local community, they invite children from two nearby schools to join them for a season. Supercilious, rich Oakdean College pupils have never mixed with the rough Sunbridge Academy kids, and when things go missing and rumours spread, the situation threatens to turn ugly. And that’s before any parents – or a godfather who happens to be a famous composer – get involved. DCI Noel Osmar has to tread carefully. After all, he’s off duty.
Can music heal social rifts? Who has been stealing and why? And will orchestra administrator Pearl have to go to Waitrose for some Duchy Original biscuits to keep the peace?
Praise for The Stockwell Park Orchestra Series:
“…a witty and irreverent musical romp, full of characters I’d love to go for a pint with. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know the Stockwell Park Orchestra and can’t wait for the next book in the series.” Claire King, author of The Night Rainbow
“Sharp, witty and richly entertaining.” Lev Parikian, author of Why Do Birds Suddenly Disappear?
“With its retro humour bordering on farce, this novel offers an escape into the turbulent (and bonkers) world of the orchestra.” Isabel Costello, author of Paris Mon Amour
