My daughter (9) has just completed grade 3 violin with an excellent distinction and a very good sight reading mark. I'm quite keen to get her involved in an orchestra with the one at her school being a bit basic as most of the players are in grade 1 or 2 - it's a junior school. I wondered if there were any parents with children participating in orchestras in Surrey? Thanks for your help.
Surrey County Arts runs various ensembles - check the website (sorry, I'm no good at links and things) for details of where and when. If you're anywhere near Godalming there's a youth orchestra there on Saturday mornings though I don't know what it's like. My children go to Hindhead Music Centre which has 2 string orchestras on a Saturday (plus a children's choir). If you're anywhere near and interested, let me know and I'll let you have more details.

Thanks, I'll look into the Godalming orchestra on Sat morning. We know Hindhead very well as my daughter used to study there before she could take lessons at school. She attends the residential camp at the end of August and I'll ask Mrs Chamberlain if she can join the orchestra even though she's not taking lessons which I thought was a pre-req. Thanks for your help.
I'm sending you a PM
