Festival to withdraw support for orchestra

THE Henley Festival Orchestra is to be rebranded.

It will now come under the auspices of the Henley Music School.

Organiser Laura Reineke, a professional violinist who has been teaching in the area for 16 years, set up the school four years ago.

She was approached by the festival to take over the 100-strong orchestra.

Mrs Reineke said: “The Henley Festival is moving its funding on to something else next year so the music school will take it over.
