Ensembles and Orchestras

HOME CLASSES > Ensembles and Orchestras

We believe that every student has something unique to bring to the Academy, which is why our Ensembles and Orchestras are at heart of what we do - enabling our students to share and grow together. From piano trios to chamber orchestras, we aim to give students the opportunity to rehearse and perform in a diverse range of settings, encouraging playfulness, creativity and innovation in everything that we do.



Chamber Orchestra

Here students will experience orchestral music making, tackling large scale orchestral works from symphonies to overtures as well as regular collaboration with our choir. Chamber Orchestra offers our young musicians the chance to play together in our largest and most advanced ensemble.

Chamber Groups

From piano trios to string quartets our small ensembles give students the opportunity to make music together with other students of their ability. These groups include Concert Band, Wind Ensemble, String Orchestra and many more!
