The orchestra meets once a month during term time on Sunday afternoons in Nottingham offering young players the opportunity to play a wide range of music all whilst introducing the important skill of playing in an ensemble.

If you’re age 8+ and play a string instrument of grade 2 – 5 standard we’d love to hear from you and invite you along to one of our rehearsals to experience it for yourself.
