Bands, Orchestras, & Choirs

After more than a year of closures due to Covid19 restrictions, we have decided that now is the right time to implement necessary change to our ensembles, collectively known as the County School of Music (CSM). We will run fewer regular bands, but these will be supplemented by an increased number of workshop-style opportunities.

 

Students can join the CSM for a flat fee of £45 per term, which will allow them to play in any regular ensemble suitable for their standard.

 

Stompers

Stompers is the ultimate group for beginners and students up to grade two, who want to join an exciting band.

 

It's the perfect place to gain experience of playing in a group and enjoy performing at large events. Stompers welcomes all instruments!
