Orchestra

Orchestra

Our orchestra meets every Tuesday morning at 8.15am. All children are welcome, whether or not they are learning a traditional orchestral instrument and even if they are not learning an instrument at all as we use lots of percussion and glockenspiels that even the youngest children can have a go at. As long as they enjoy taking part and concentrating on the conductor, children as young as year 1 are welcomed. This year we have a varied group, from children with no experience of playing whatsoever, up to grade 2 flautists and violinists. We have a lot of fun and usually manage to master a pop song or two! We perform in the Summer concert or at creativity day each year.
