Orchestra

Making music together

Any child who has been learning to play a musical instrument for at least 6 months is welcome to join the orchestra. There is no minimum standard requires, but it helps if you already know how to read music. We can provide easy parts or more tricky parts to suit the standard of the players.

The orchestra usually perform at least twice a year - in the Christmas service and in the Easter Music Evenings. From time to time, we also take part in workshops and concerts with orchestras from other local schools.

During the spring we will be preparing for our performance at the Music Evenings on 20th and 21st March. We are starting off with a classical piece and a pop song.
