We are excited to announce that we are planning to resume with face to face music group rehearsals w/c 21st June (in line with all Covid social distancing measures being lifted). Rehearsals will take place as before lockdown (details below).

Beginner – this orchestra is for children (usually Y3 – Y7) who have just started learning to play their instrument (and can play a minimum of 5 notes) and those who have been learning for a number of years (up to grade 3). The Music is specially chosen by expert Music Leaders so that it is just the right level for you. You can join any time, just come along and join in!

The orchestra rehearses during term time in a number of our music centres: (you only need to attend rehearsals at one of the venues so choose which is most convenient)
