Rain­ing on their pa­rade doesn’t de­ter Swedish youth or­ches­tra

The Oban Times - - News -

THE FOUL weather struck again in Oban and this time, it rained on the pa­rade.

Vreta Kloster, a youth or­ches­tra from Swe­den, were play­ing in Oban as part of their Scot­tish tour.

But the play­ers of the band were brassed off on Tues­day as the wind and rain took its toll. Even their pro­tec­tive pon­chos couldn’t save them from the el­e­ments.

A young girl player found out the hard way as she tried to sal­vage her sheet mu­sic (see inset pic­ture), from the down­pour.

The or­ches­tra of 30 peo­ple had only been in Oban for three hours but the weather didn’t dampen their spir­its.

One plucky mem­ber said: ‘It’s OK, we’re from Swe­den, - we’re used to this.’
