Details on our groups where they meet for rehearsals, and how to get involved...

We believe playing in a group is not only a valuable experience and key to developing as a musician, but also great fun!
Whether you're a singer or an instrumentalist, joining an ensemble is a fantastic way to make new friends, challenge your playing, and experience the thrill of making music with others.

Our ensembles are designed to enable young people to play with others at the same stage of experience, whilst being guided by professional musicians
who are all experienced performers, composers, conductors and music educators.  Together the members of our choirs and orchestras can learn, grow and play as they journey to creating quality performance opportunities of all kinds.
