Ochestral Residential March Dates

Back in October The Love Music Trust had to postpone this weekend due to COVID-19, but we are delighted to be able to offer this rearranged weekend with 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 5th March.

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 4th March with registration and a full rehearsal. Saturday 5th March will run from 9am until 5pm with full rehearsal, sectionals, games and the day will finish with a concert by the Junior Orchestra. Sunday 6th March 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.
