‘Waifs and Staves’ is a group of classical musicians from in and around Bridgnorth who perform together from time to time to raise money for local charities.
As the name ‘Waifs’ suggests, our members are dragged in from the highways and byways as required. We have a pool of about 15 players, but many are young parents with jobs and children and understandably not everyone can make it for every concert.

The programme will follow the usual Waifs recipe – “nothing too long and nothing too boring”.
Popular classics will be interspersed with TV and film music and Waifs will perform as a group but also in duets and trios.
The programme will be selected from Waifs repertoire which includes, amongst others:
Shostakovich Waltz (Jazz Suite 2) and The Gadfly
Delibes Flower Duet
TV themes for Poirot, Jeeves and Wooster
Coates Dambusters March and Calling all workers
Faure Dolly Suite
Saint Saens Carnival of the Animals
Elgar Sea Pictures
Confrey Dizzy Fingers
Binge Elizabethan Serenade, Sailing By and Miss Melanie
Piazzolla Oblivion
Márquez Danzon no. 2
Walton Popular Song
