The Queen's C of E
Primary School

"A" Orchestra

sample image

A-Orchestra is open to children in Years 5 and 6 who have reached approximately Grade 1 standard. Younger Juniors can also join if they're already making good progress on their instruments. The music is challenging - some is up to Grade V standard and stretches our most advanced players - but simpler parts are available and parent helpers support the children, so everyone can enjoy playing at their own level. Please make sure your child brings their instrument every Thursday - they make fantastic progress.

The orchestra plays in  school and community concerts - including our lovely event at the Barn Church each March, where we join with former pupils and community musicians to create a huge, themed concert.  The children have also played in special events at Southwark Cathedral, and at concerts with local adult orchestras.
