Area ensembles

How to apply and become a member?

If you play an instrument why not join an ensemble to improve your playing, meet new friends and have some incredible times. Our area ensembles offer a wide range of opportunities from beginner level upwards. All ensembles listed highlight what grades you need to have achieved or play at, in order to join.

Membership to ensembles is open to children and young people up to the age of 19.

Our ensembles start in September each year and run term time only, although you can become a member anytime during the school year. They rehearse once a week in schools or music centres and perform a number of times each year in schools and professional venues.

Saturday area centre ensembles rehearsal dates (week day rehearsals may start earlier):

  • Autumn term: 12 weeks: 10 September to 10 December 2022
  • Spring term: 10 weeks: 7 January to 25 March 2023
  • Summer term 11 weeks: 22 April to 15 July 2023
