Our very successful instrumental ensembles are back up and running!
The String Ensemble will rehearse every Thursday in the Music Room as 12.30pm under the instruction of Ms Savage. This ensemble is best suited to more advanced String players – violin, cello, harp – who have been attending lessons for more than one year and have mastered the basics of their instrument.
The Woodwind Ensemble will rehearse in Practice Room 1 in the Castle with Mr Daudet, also at 12.30pm on Thursdays. This ensemble welcomes all abilities and is particularly suited to those learning recorder, flute, clarinet and saxophone.
Our School Orchestra rehearses every Friday from 11 until 11.30am in the Music Room, lead by Ms McKiernan with assistance from some of our visiting music teachers. The Orchestra consists of String, Wind and Percussion players of all abilities.
If you think you would like to join one of the ensembles please see Ms McKiernan for more information. New members are always welcome and pupils are also welcome to sit in on a rehearsal to see how things work.
Pupils taking part in any of the Ensembles should be ready to meet outside the Music Room at the start of each rehearsal with their instrument. Rehearsals take place very week during the school year.
