Interested in joining an Ensemble?
We refer to our central performance groups collectively as 'Ensembles' - these can be Orchestras, Bands, Choirs or Ensembles!
We have a number of Ensembles which rehearse on saturday mornings and weekday evenings - all run through our charity, The Leicester-Shire Music and Cultural Trust.
Information about each Ensemble, including grade level, rehearsal venue, rehearsal and performance dates etc, can be found on our Ensemble Information page.
For more information about our Ensembles, please watch our short Ensembles video (to the right).
Following our annual audition / application process last summer term, we have now sent out offers of places in our Ensembles.
Although most Ensemble places have been filled, we still have room for more musicians! If you are interested in joining an Ensemble, please click here
We are especially looking for students who play the following;
Viola, Double Bass, French Horn, Trombone, Tuba, Oboe, Bassoon.
For all new pupils playing one of these instruments, the first term of ensemble membership is free followed by 50% subsidy for the rest of the academic year – this also includes the free hire of an instrument for the entire time you are a member of one of our ensembles.
If you are new to the service and are interested in joining an ensemble, or your circumstances have changed and you would like to re-join , please email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know your age, instrument and level of any grades taken and we will let you know which group would be best for you and availability of places.
We have an outstanding reputation for providing quality aspirational and motivating ensembles and performance opportunities for students. Every group rehearses weekly practising repertoire to be performed at the end of each term in high quality venues around Leicestershire. At each performance there is chance for students and parents to see performances by other groups within the ensemble structure and also those given by our Hub partners including school groups.
Information about Singing and Choirs can be found on our Singing Opportunities page.
