The Oasby Music Group is now in its 5th year and our ensembles meet 4 times a term to rehearse and perform together.
We have 12 ensembles this year from the young beginners through to the most advanced players and a super team of
ensemble staff led by Laura - Ken Garfield, Rowan Cozens, Rosie Spinks, Runa Saha. We have five large ensembles and
various duets, trios,quartets, quintets and sextets who rehearse during the ensemble day.
workshop with three different ensembles. Nicola and Leonard are two of the most charismatic and sought after musicians
in the country and their visit was incredibly inspiring and motivating for these students. Phoebe, aged 7, summed the
whole experience up: "Meeting Nicola Benedetti was an incredible opportunity for me and I’m sure that everybody felt the
same. I worked really hard before the day and practised with my sister. We were so lucky because not many people get to do something as great
as this. The concert went really well and I loved it, especially when she said that we were one of the best taught orchestras she had ever heard (I think this is because of our teacher Laura). One of the things that I will remember Nicola said was to move your body with the music. Thank you so much and I’ll remember it forever."

During the year, we invite special guests to come along and work with us. In the past, we are delighted to have welcomed Penny Spencer, Chris Bradley, Clare Thompson and Jo Bradley to lead workshops and we are now looking forward to welcoming the Villiers Quartet in February and the Stringcredibles in the Summer term.
