Making Music: From ideas to prints to performance

Musical arrangements are written for our orchestra by our conductor, Michael Copley. To print the music, volunteers from the orchestra run a complete in-house desktop publishing and printing system. Once the music is written with the software Sibelius,  scripts, written in Sibelius' own programming language ManuScript, are used to batch-process the files. The files are printed and uploaded to the orchestra website.
