The Cambridge Area Music Centre is one step up from school-based orchestras and offers more intensive ensemble work each week in term time for those from Grade 2 and up. The Centre nurtures specialist woodwind, string, brass and percussion ensembles as well as a full orchestra.
To get the most from the music centre, you are strongly encouraged to stay for the whole evening. The last session of each term culminates in a lively and enjoyable performance for parents and friends.
Trumpington Community College, Lime Avenue, Cambridge, CB2 9FD
The ensembles for brass, wind, strings and percussion meet at 5.30pm; everyone then combines at 6.30pm to create the inspiring sound of a full orchestra.
You need to play an orchestral instrument at Grade 2 to 6 level and be able to read music.
We welcome new players to come and try it out first.
Please still register before attending so that we have your emergency contact details. You won't be charged if you decide not to continue.
