Call for young musicians to have fun and make music

Young musicians are being given a chance to join others in making music and improving their orchestral skills.

Some places are still open for youngsters aged 8-11 to make music with the popular Weald Ensemble. From violins and cellos, to flutes and fifes players of all instruments and levels of abilities are welcome to join this popular ensemble.

Many of to-day’s top rock and pop as well as classical musicians started out in similar groups and ensembles before making their way onto the world stage. So who knows it might be the Weald Ensemble today but the Wembley Arena tomorrow.

It takes place every Thursday at Billingshurst Primary School between 4.30 – 5.15pm. The first half term is free so young musicians can find out what the sessions are like without paying a penny. After that a small fee is payable.

Peter Griffiths, West Sussex County Council Cabinet Member for Education and Schools, said: “These sessions provide an excellent chance for children to meet other musicians and play in sessions which are fun and help to improve children’s musical skills.”

To take part contact music@westsussex.gov.uk and ask for an application form.
