Saturday Strings rehearse on Saturday mornings at the Halifax Music Centre (Calderdale Music Trust, Heath Campus, Free School Lane, Halifax) at 9:30am for an hour.
Saturday Strings is open to students of any age, Grade 2 and above.
Saturday Strings was founded as a starter ensemble several years ago and has progressed rapidly to become an intermediate ensemble. It provides high quality teaching and performance opportunities in a supportive atmosphere. Saturday Strings embraces a wide variety of musical styles, including classical traditional and jazz, and gives the students opportunities to learn different playing styles and bowing techniques. Rehearsals are friendly, combining hard work with fun and a sense of being part of a team. Saturday Strings performs several times a year in both formal and informal settings and has taken part in Music For Youth.
