Our Ensembles Are Recruiting!

Since relaunching in September 2021, our County School of Music (CSM) has been home to five new instrumental bands and three choirs. We are now looking for new members to increase the size of our groups. These bands and choirs perform regularly at Music Service events and embark on an annual overseas tour.


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. Find out more about each band and how to sign up below:
