John Forte - Violin

John Forte has been a member of the orchestra for fifteen years and chairman for a lot longer than he expected! He has played in several amateur orchestras over the years though TSO has been his longest stint. When he's not playing in the second violins, John works as a screenwriter. The orchestra certainly provides plenty of inspiration.

He has made many friends through the orchestra and along with Liz from the first violins, formed The Chemistry Quartet, a funky string ensemble which plays regular gigs throughout Devon.
