We offer a variety of ensembles for orchestral and band instrumentalists, which are organised by Joe Reeves, Youth Engagement Assistant. There are bands and orchestras for young musicians of all ages and abilities.
The ensembles rehearse on weekday evenings during term time and are a great way to enjoy music-making and meet friends. There are concerts at the end of each term and players can also take part in our residential music weekends away (years 4-8) and European concert tours (year 9+).
