NCMA Schola Musica is a chamber orchestra in which young string players learn some of the beautiful string repertoire written by great composers.
The rewards for young musicians playing in such a group are numerous. They learn about leadership, they learn to communicate within a musical setting, how to coordinate bowing and sound and how to develop the music imaginatively.
The orchestra features young soloists and these roles are shared as the students gain confidence.
All students study through NCMA and range in age between 11 and 17 years. There is no conductor and the students take turns leading their sections. Schola perform concerts at NCMA and various schools and retirement homes in the region.
At this final lunchtime concert of 2019, Schola Musica will play a selection of different works including Bach, Mozart, Bartok, Gershwin, Boccherini, Ravel, Karl Jenkins, Celtic folk music, and some popular tunes.
Don’t miss an opportunity to support and encourage our younger generation of fabulous musicians.
Schola Musica is tutored by Margarita Jackson and Lissa Cowie.
