Central Ensemble Audition Requests – OPEN

Central Ensembles 2021/22

Audition Requests – July 2021 for membership from September 2021.

Central Ensembles rehearse weekly during term time and offer progression for intermediate to advanced young musicians. Membership is by audition.

As a Central Ensemble member, your young musician(s) will be nurtured and supported by skilled professional tutors and conductors, developing their confidence and musical abilities. Members will make memories that last a lifetime by taking part in performances on the stages of Birmingham’s most prestigious venues, celebrating their musical achievements to packed audiences. These groups also regularly represent Services for Education on the Regional and National Stage.

All our ensembles serve as an extension to weekly instrumental/vocal lessons and are intended to be in addition to, and not instead of, school ensemble music making . By joining one of our groups your young musician will be representing their school at city level.

Please see the full list of Central Ensembles on offer HERE . We are inviting applications for your young musician’s preferred ensemble, but please note that places will be allocated (subject to successful audition) to the ensemble most suitable for your child’s level of playing and previous ensemble experience.
