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.
