Bands, Orchestras & Choirs - Which One?!
Updated: Oct 6
Earlier this term we relaunched our ensembles (collectively known as the County School of Music) with a number of changes. Our offer was admittedly in need of a revamp, and what better time to refresh things than post COVID restrictions, which saw our rehearsals shut down for over 12 months.
Best For: Brass, Woodwind, Percussion
A mixed ensemble split into two levels - 'Intermediate' for grade 3 & 4 standard players, and 'Senior' for those of grade 5+ standard. The music ranges from film and TV themes to well known show tunes. Rehearsals are every other Saturday from 09:30-12:30 at our centre in Bayston Hill, SY3 0NU.
Best For: Strings, Percussion

A perfect introduction to ensemble playing, Stompers welcomes all players from beginner up to grade 2 standard. This group has the broadest mix of instruments and plays a range of exciting music. Rehearsals are every other Saturday from 09:30-12:00 at Crowmoor Primary School, SY2 5JJ.
Best For: Voice
For those passionate about singing, our choirs offer opportunities for a range of ages. Boys Choir is for year 2 upwards, Intermediate Girls Choir is for year 5 upwards, and Senior Girls Choir is for year 10 upwards. Groups meet on alternate Fridays (boys from 5:00pm and girls from 6:00pm) at our centre in Bayston Hill, SY3 0NU.
Students can join the CSM for a flat fee of £45 per term, which allows them to play in any regular ensemble suitable for their standard.
