Coventry String Orchestra

Description

The String Orchestra is a friendly and ambitious ensemble for string players (violin, viola, cello or double bass).  

Members are drawn from a range of primary and secondary schools in the city, and are at levels from grade 2 to grade 6.

Repertoire is varied, from Baroque favourites to Classical and Romantic pieces and including some film music and other arrangements. It’s a great ensemble to join to improve your sight-reading, as well as develop your ensemble skills and we play regular live concerts both as a group and as part of the larger Coventry Music concert series.

All new members will need to complete an enrolment form on joining the group; the easiest way to do that is online here.

Fretworks Guitar group

Description

Guitar students learn to improvise and compose as well as performing and listening critically to a variety of genres. They learn something of the history of the instrument and the music they are playing, and are given opportunities to perform at regular concerts in prestigious venues such as the Belgrade Theatre, Warwick Arts Centre and Coventry Cathedral.

This group is also a great opportunity to learn other fretted instruments such as mandolin, ukulele and bass guitar, and progress their learning to a higher level.

Our guitar groups will get the opportunity to perform at live venues and will come together to perform twice a year at our showcase events.
