PATIENTS, families and staff at Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital have been met by a multitude of musicians this week.

The WA Charity Orchestra (WACO) took to Watling Walk on Tuesday for a flash mob and have been performing in the cancer centre each day.

String, reed, flute, wind and low brass quartets and quintets have brought their melodies to the centre, and WACO musical director Samuel Parry said 30 people joined forces for the flash mob.

“Our mission is to make a difference through music,” he said.

“(WACO is) an amazing bunch of people; we do around 10 big concerts per year, and there are high school students through to seniors.”

Following their performances at the hospital, WACO’s next big event will be at Churchlands SHS on April 28, where they will take to the stage with a choir.
