What Do We Do ?
We have four orchestral groups who meet every Thursday evening to practise during the two school terms from August to Easter Time.
We have four groups covering all orchestral instruments as well as a few other instruments. Each group caters for different abilities so that our players can experience the fun of playing their instruments in a group situation from an early stage in learning their instrument.
We usually play two concerts, at Christmas and Easter time. We also sometimes play extra concerts, for example our Symphony Orchestra played at the NAYO Festival of Youth Orchestras at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music (RSAMD) and our Concert Orchestra played at Mugdock Country Park bandstand in June 2009.
Players may have the opportunity to perform solos and suitable combinations of players are encouraged to form small groups such as a string or woodwind quartet.
