The Senior Orchestra meet every Wednesday during lunch time in the Music Department on the Lodge Road.
A Chamber Orchestra will usually perform at Prize Day, then the ensemble grows in number for the annual Carol Services in St. Patrick’s Church. Here the programme is more demanding with two performance pieces and six carols to play including challenging descant parts. By the time the Spring Concert arrives in March the orchestra will have reached capacity and all instrumental players in Years 12-14 will be most welcome to participate.
The Intermediate Orchestra will rehearse in the Templeton Hall on the Castlerock Road on a Friday from 1:15pm. This group of musicians will attempt a more challenging repertoire in preparation for performance at the Spring Concert.
The Junior Orchestra rehearse every Monday during lunch time from January and perform at the Spring Concert in March. All orchestral players in Years 8 and 9 are welcome to attend regardless of standard.
