Workshop: Sunday 10th November 2024 – South Nottinghamshire Academy, Radcliffe on Trent

Concert: Sunday 17th November – Albert Hall, Nottingham


Come to Stringwise 2024 – an instrumental workshop day and concert for all young violin, viola, cello and double bass players from beginners to grade 5+. (For wind, brass and percussion players – check out BANDWISE!)

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)
  • Stringwise 3 (grade 5+)

A music pack, including rehearsal tracks, will be sent out approximately 4 weeks before the course. These tracks take you through the music and the workshop day rehearsals carry on from where they leave off.
