Strings

More than 200 children take part in string groups at the Music Centre.

Who is it for?

All school children are welcome to audition.

Most new members join the Training String Orchestra and progress to other groups as they develop.

The String Department also includes the Music Centre’s brilliant folk band, ‘Funky Folk’. This group has been a great success since it was formed in 2017 and welcomes players of all relevant instruments – fiddles, flutes, pipes and keyboards etc.
