North Wiltshire Intermediate String Ensemble is a string orchestra for young musicians learning the Violin, Viola, Cello or Double Bass.  We welcome players who are grade 2 to Grade 5 standard. North Wiltshire Intermediate String Ensemble plays repertoire which covers a wide range of styles from classical to film music and will also develop general musical skills in addition to instrument specific ones. Recent music has included works by Mozart and Vivaldi, music from Phantom of the Opera and Pirates of the Caribbean.

Progression

Members when ready will be invited to join West Wiltshire Youth Orchestra. 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.
