Our courses bring together musicians of varying experience, from adult learners to experienced players. Working together as one ensemble, we build a strong sense of collective identity, thereby achieving convincing performances full of vitality.
Repertoire covers all periods of orchestral and chamber music, from baroque and classical to romantic and modern works. We also include music from the contemporary repertoire, frequently commissioning new works ourselves.
We work with distinguished musicians who command successful careers as performers as well as being inspirational and supportive tutors. As a team they create a friendly and encouraging environment conducive to learning, building confidence and making real progress as a musician. Concerts given by the tutors are a feature of all courses.
