‘Chamber music courses for string players - aged 6 – 18, all abilities ... Whilst it is always possible to find chamber music parts to suit every player at any level, it is not always so easy for very junior pupils to fit into an orchestra for the first time. We have addressed this conundrum by introducing a junior musicianship class which takes place during the time when the junior string orchestra rehearses ... The class size is small, but open to any pupil who doesn’t yet feel ready to join the orchestra.' Annual Summer School held Mid August. Also: ‘Concerts of chamber music take place throughout the year’.

Our Vision ‘Being musical is at the heart of human experience. Our vision is a world where every person has access to musical engagement, transforming lives and communities particularly for children and young people, those in financial need and those in challenging circumstances. In a Borough where opportunities for engagement with arts and culture is all too often uneven and localised on account of differences in financial means and social aspiration, we will target resources to groups and localities where there are barriers to participation. Our high quality learning opportunities will enrich lives, support social integration and cultural regeneration, and enable the fulfilment of musical potential.’

lewishamchoralsociety.org.uk

‘A large, lively community-based choir, with almost two hundred singers. Founded in 1950 by a group based at Lewisham’s parish church, it grew in size and ambition, marking its transformation by a change of name to Lewisham Choral Society in the early 1980s ... We are a performing choir, staging four concerts a year and taking part in other choral singing events and collaborations when opportunities arise ... Although we do not audition, the choir performs to a high standard and tackles some complex pieces which require a level of experience and musical ability. Rehearsals are relatively fast-paced, so may not suit complete beginners.‘
