Bradford-on-Avon Junior Strings is a string orchestra for young musicians learning the Violin, Viola, Cello or Double Bass. We welcome players that have been learning for one term up to those who are grade 2 standard. Bradford-on-Avon Junior Strings plays repertoire especially designed for young string players often arranged and specially tailored to the group by our teaching staff. Repertoire covers a broad range of styles and will also develop general musical skills in addition to instrument specific ones.
Members when ready will be invited to join West Wiltshire Intermediate String Ensemble. Grade standards are a guidline to help parents select the most appropriate group. Students progress to the next level on the recommendation of their current conductor. Conductors liaise to make these decisions taking into account the musician’s age, ability and ensemble skills and whether vacancies exist.
