With the summer holidays underway, now is the time to make sure that anyone planning on taking up music lessons, or playing in one of our orchestras and ensembles, is set for the return to school in September. Find out what you could be playing if you joined an ensemble - as well as where and when - here:

Ensembles are a superb way to stretch your musical abilities, develop new skills, play exciting repertoire to a high standard and make new friends along the way! The programme for next academic year lives up to that billing whatever your preferred instrument. Our County Youth Orchestra will cover an eclectic programme drawn from classic movie musicals, while the County Youth Wind Orchestra's programme pays tribute to the brilliance of Leonard Bernstein, Suppe, Berlioz, Offenbach and Andrew Lloyd-Webber. Each of our sectional ensembles will also be working on exciting and challenging new repertoire in their own right.

If you are a parent or carer of a child who is currently receiving tuition or in an ensemble, don't forget to:

- Book/rebook their lessons
- Book/rebook their bands or ensembles
- Book/rebook their instrument loan
- Update your online account if they are changing schools
