Lincolnshire Music Service is proud to offer you the chance to continue playing with others in our County Groups for 2020/21.

The Lincolnshire Music Service is excited to announce that we will be working with Chineke!, Europe's first black, Asian and ethnically diverse orchestra. The professional musicians are also involved in mentoring the organisation's Chineke! Junior Orchestra, who are semi finalists in this year's Britain's Got Talent, (due to appear on Saturday 26 September)!  

Young members of LMS County Groups will be working with professional musicians from Chineke!, through an inspirational programme of events and activities developed in partnership with Orchestras Live, starting this autumn term.

We have a new look, for one year only!

This year, County Groups will be entirely 'virtual', all working together to produce a number of performances. As restrictions lift, we may introduce a blended model of virtual as well as face to face delivery but this will be guided by national guidance. 

As a member of the Lincolnshire Virtual Orchestra , you will receive a resource package for each piece. This will include:

  • Access to scores and tutorials
  • A 1:1 session with a member of Lincolnshire Music Service staff
  • Sectionals
  • A half day workshop with LMS staff and professional orchestral musicians
  • Work with a nationally renowned professional facilitator

The orchestra is open to all young musicians from grade four upwards and is open to all up to the age of 21. For those young musicians about to start life at university, you can still be a member as this offer is all on-line!

We will be working on a wide range of music with bespoke arrangements to include all.

If at all possible we will look at a 'live' performance in July 2021. This will be dependent on government guidelines.

Just £50 for the year!
