For: Orchestral musicians from Grades 2-6
The Area Music Centre is one step up from school-based orchestras and offer more intensive ensemble work each week in term time for those from Grade 2 and up. The Centre offers a wind band and string orchestra as well as a full orchestra in which to develop ensemble playing skills.
To get the most from the music centre, you are strongly encouraged to stay for the whole morning. The last session of each term culminates in a lively and enjoyable performance for parents and friends.
The Ely Area Music Centre is arranged in partnership with King's Ely.
