Orlando’s cello pilgrimage

I met Orlando Jopling in his role as a promoter of a plastic-bag-free Newington Green. And I knew he was a distinguished musician.

But I’ve only just come across another Orlando project – playing Bach cello suites in churches to raise money for their restoration and upkeep.

Bach’s music was written in and for churches; so this seems a very appropriate way to support them today.

The combination of a young family and a globe-trotting career would be enough for most people; it’s always impressive to meet folk like Orlando who make time to give something back.
