What do you like about being part of the Sunshine Coast Guitar Orchestra?: The people that unite to create this “team” are all so diverse in their attitudes, 
abilities, interests , backgrounds etc .... and as a result this lends itself to an extremely interesting conversation – both musically & otherwise ....on rehearsal 
nights, socially when we have the opportunity to jam & when we perform publicly as an orchestra.
