Come to Stringwise 2022 – an instrumental workshop day and concert for all young violin, viola, cello and double bass players from beginners to grade 5+.

Rehearsals are led by experienced conductors: Helen Maddison, Josh Goodman and Richard Howarth plus a team of specialist string players leading activities for everyone to enjoy.

There will be three groups

  • Stringwise 2 (grade 2-4)
