The Love Music Trust is delighted to be able to offer the opportunity for musicians in Cheshire East to attend an Orchestral Weekend at Eaton Bank Academy, Congleton.
This year we are running the weekend in conjunction with the Congleton Youth Orchestra and are able to offer both a Junior and a Senior Orchestra.
The Junior Orchestra is open to musicians with a minimum of 12 months playing experience. This can include those who have just completed a year of wider opportunities within school and are looking to continue developing their playing next academic year. We will be welcoming these players along for a specially designed day on Saturday 16th October.
The Senior Orchestra is open to musicians of an approximate grade 4 standard and upwards. The weekend for the senior orchestra will start at 5:30pm on Friday 15th October with registration and a full rehearsal. Saturday 16th October will run from 9am until 5pm with full rehearsal, sectionals, games and the day will finish with a concert by the Junior Orchestra. Sunday 17th October will consist of a full rehearsal in the morning (for the Senior Orchestra) followed by a lunch time concert.
The weekend is open to students in Cheshire East who are in full time education. The cost for the weekend is £75 for the Senior Orchestra and £25 for the one day Junior Orchestra event.
