The English Symphony Orchestra has been running children’s orchestra courses, attracting students from around the country, for over 20 years. Orchestral discipline is matched by improvisation and sheer fun with the primary aim of helping children develop musicianship, confidence and sociability.
The varied activities on each course include full and sectional orchestral rehearsals as well as singing, group improvisation, solo “masterclasses” and games and every course concludes with a wonderful short informal concert.
A highlight of this year was the Final Fireworks Concert of the 2018 Worcester Festival at the Swan Theatre, where some of our groups took part in a special pre-concert performance.
