Information re the Open Day for Exeter Children's Orchestra later this month from Geraldine Bayliss (Chair)
We would be delighted if any child learning an instrument would like to join us for the morning to try us out and see if may like to join us.
The Exeter Children’s Orchestra (ECO) are having an Open Day on Saturday 20th January.
They can come along and join in from 10am – 12pm. We run a policy of “no scary auditions” and the music will be selected to enable everyone to join in and see if they like playing with a friendly children’s orchestra.
For those newer to music, we also have a separate Junior Orchestra from 11am – 12pm, so it would be great to also see those not as confident come along and join in too! For those who are more experienced and higher up their grades – we have a Youth Orchestra.
Obviously everyone will need to bring their instruments with them, and a music stand is always helpful!
We cater for Recorders, Flutes, Clarinets, Oboes, Saxophones (all kinds), Bassoons, Trumpets and Cornets, Tenor Horns, Baritone Horns, French Horns, Trombones, (Bass or Treble Clef), Tubas, Violins, Violas, Cellos, String Bases (including bass guitars) and Percussionists. We’d even be happy to see harpists!
We will be serving refreshments, and we also run a tuck shop!
We also have a Facebook page and if anyone wanted to see what we do, there is a selection on there from recent concerts.
