Play with others on Tuesday evenings! 


ELLSO is pleased to announce its latest venture - as an alternative to the full Saturday morning, we now offer an evening of group tuition and ensemble playing every Tuesday in term time.

The orchestra is open to violinists and cellists who have been learning for at least one year and caters for those who are at a standard equivalent to ELLSO STAGE 2/3 (about ABRSM Grades 1+ to 4).

There are no examinations or auditions - everyone has a group technique lesson on their instrument and then plays in the ensemble which takes part in three informal end of term concerts to show off what they've acheived.

Starting at 7:15pm and ending at 9:30pm, the evening comprises two teaching sessions:-

One dedicated to developing technique on your chosen instrument

One to playing in ensemble.


And of course the all-important break for tea and biscuits...

ELLSO members are friendly and enthusiastic, and willing to tackle a wide variety of music even though, as late starters, some have not yet reached a high technical standard.
