We are delighted that the FolkActive Youth Ensemble is continuing into the 2019-20 academic year. The ensemble began in spring 2019 with string players of Grade 3 standard or above, and we are now opening membership to other instruments. Please contact us for details – we hope to have room for you! The ensemble is led by Chris Nichols of Threepenny Bit.
Tunes are taught by ear and then used to explore the stylistic details in the playing of folk music as well as spontaneous use of harmony and variation, in both small and large groups. There will be a tune book for children to take home as well as handouts with extra music covered.
Sessions run once a month on a Sunday, 10am to 1pm with a break for snacks.
