Children's Orchestras

Following the success of our new Children's Orchestra, we are now expanding to create two orchestras, both on Wednesday afternoons: the Children's Orchestra, for players of Grade 2 to 3 level, at 16:45-17:30, and the Youth Orchestra for Grade 4 to 8 players, at 17:30-18:30.  These orchestras are open, without audition, to children in P1 to S6 age range. Within a fun yet disciplined atmosphere, conductor Gillian Craig directs the youngsters, challenging them to improve their individual abilities at the same time as developing their musicianship, orchestral and team skills. 

Rehearsals take place in the Younger Hall, North Street, KY16 9AJ, beginning on 13 September 2017.  The orchestras will perform in community concerts during the year.  All members must join the Music Centre for an annual fee of £33.  To register interest and for further information, email music@st-andrews.ac.uk or phone 01334 462226.
