About Us

Kentisbeare Children's Orchestra meets on Thursday's evenings in term time in Kentisbeare Village Hall. We play from 5.30pm to 7pm with a snack break in the middle. Some weeks we split into smaller groups of strings/wind. This helps us to build confidence and skill. Volunteer helpers work with our music director to support the children's learning.

We welcome beginners who have been learning for about a year and have a grasp of music reading. We are proud also to be catering for more advanced players (up to grade 7) who sometimes work in a group on their own and otherwise take a lead in the orchestral sessions, giving invaluable support to the less experienced.

Rehearsals cost £4-00 with term and family discounts. Click here to find out when our next rehearsal is.
