Led by Robin Norman, 10 weekly sessions are held per term on a Thursday evening at Ken Stimpson Community School, in Werrington.
Robin studied at the Birmingham Conservatoire, one of Europe’s top specialist music institutions, graduating with a first class honours degree in 1995. Since that time he has worked as musical director for a number of orchestras, concert bands and other ensembles, as well as performing around the world as a conductor and tuba player.
Sessions cost just £25.00 per term (plus a £5.00 joining fee for the first term and this includes a uniform polo shirt) and include:
- Junior Band, Junior String, (4.30pm-5.30pm) Junior Groups accept members between Grades 1-3
- Concert Band and Senior String Orchestra (5.45pm-7.15pm) Senior Groups from Grade 3+
Peterborough Youth Orchestra players are all Grade 6+.
The ensembles rehearse weekly and prepare new repertoire each term leading up to an end-of-term concert. The repertoire rehearsed and performed is wide ranging from ‘Bach to the Beatles’ and more.
Peterborough Youth Orchestra and the City of Peterborough Youth Ensembles are currently recruiting new members for all sessions. For more details about these groups and the Easter Workshop and Gala Concert email Robin at firstname.lastname@example.org
