Our ensembles and groups
Every musician who is eligible is expected to be in an ensemble or choir.
Our aim is a joined up musical pathway for all.
Playing and performing with others is an essential part of being a musician.
That is who we are.

Monday – Year 2 choir (3.15pm), Junior Wind Band (3.30pm), Concert Band (4pm)

We also run extra sectional and ensemble rehearsals, chamber music and more.

Where there is a clash with revision or something else - talk and we compromise.
