The two orchestras provide an opportunity for young musicians from all over Devon to experience orchestral music. Bursaries are available for Torbay students and all students eligible for Free School Meals have their fees paid. Both orchestras rehearse on a roughly monthly basis and can attend a 3 day residential as part of the season. Both orchestras will perform in regular concerts throughout the year along with involvement in local and national events.
The Concert Orchestra is aimed approximately at Grade 4 standard upwards but, if less advanced players are keen and willing to have a go, this shouldn’t be a barrier. There is no audition as players are invited to try it for themselves. The repertoire includes film themes, light classics and any music with appeal to young orchestral players.
The Symphony Orchestra is for Grade 6 standard players upwards plays more demanding music including suitable movements from symphonies, orchestral suites and interesting works from a range of musical periods. Auditions may be necessary for some oversubscribed instruments but the aim is to make these as relaxed as possible.
