The Collis School Orchestra has now been up and running for five years. In that time, the orchestra has grown from a few players to a well-established 30 strong ensemble with new members joining all the time from our school community. As well as performing at school concerts such as the Jubilee celebrations last year, the orchestra also takes part in Borough wide events throughout the year. The highlight of our playing year is the Borough Instrumental Day when we get the chance to come together with other school ensembles to create a huge orchestra. Last year, we were lucky enough to take part in the Dreams 2012 concert to celebrate the Queen’s Jubilee. Next year, we will be playing as part of the Firebird Project to accompany massed primary dancers. As well as playing, the orchestra has trips to hear professional orchestras in London.
We meet on Wednesday mornings at 8.00am before school! If you play an orchestral instrument and would be interested in joining the orchestra, please contact either Kathryn Doley (firstname.lastname@example.org), Nicola Whiteside or Clare Habershon (Music Co-ordinator).
