Participating in an Ensemble allows students to apply the skills they have developed through personal practice, Specialist Tuition and Cohort Workshops in the way that music is all about: playing with others!
Working under the guidance of our teaching faculty, Small Ensemble members collaborate during weekly rehearsals to develop a collection of diverse repertoire. Once this repertoire reaches a suitable standard, opportunities for performances within the school and the general community can be made available.
Membership in a Small Ensemble is open to all enrolled Performance Music students, with specific placements determined by audition and/or faculty approval. Small Ensemble rehearsals are held during recess of the day indicated below:
