Community Orchestra and Community Training Orchestra

Moreton Hall established 2 community orchestras in 2012 for the benefit of both the Moreton Hall students but also the children from the local community

Aims

The project aims to give all children, no matter what school they attend, the oportunity to access expereince of playing in an orchestra

Background

The LEA music provision was being dramatically cut back and Moreton saw a real need for orchestra training for children who would otherwise have no access to an orchestra

Resources

The music department gives up an evening a week at Moreton Hall and puts on an imprressive concert with the children of the orchestra one or two times a year

Pupil Involvement

All ages are involved - children just need to play an orchestra instrument and be having lessons.  The training orchestra allows for beginners to get involved.

Frequency

Weekly in term time
