The training orchestra is designed for pupils who are between Grade 2 and Grade 4 standard and who are interested in developing their ensemble playing. The orchestra is led by the director of Wakefield Youth Orchestra, Mr Nick Meredith, with specialist music teachers on hand to help!
The rehearsals include lots of musical ensemble activities to help develop group playing and listening skills and the repertoire is accessible and not too demanding! Many members later move into Wakefield Youth Orchestra.
Rehearsals are held weekly at Manygates Music Centre on Fridays before Wakefield Youth Orchestra between 4.50pm and 5.50pm.
