Concert: Sunday 19th November – Albert Hall, Nottingham


Come to Stringwise 2023 – 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 and a team of specialist instrumentalists on the workshop day. Family and friends are invited to watch the informal concert the following weekend at Nottingham’s Albert Hall!

There will be three groups

  • Stringwise 1 (grade 0 – 1)
  • Stringwise 2 (grade 2 – 4)
