Children in Key Stage 2 or 3 who may have missed playing in a band or orchestra due to the Covid-19 pandemic will have the opportunity to come together for an afternoon of fun musical activity.

Wolverhampton Music Service is hosting a TRY day on Saturday (20 November) – giving youngsters who have just started having weekly lessons through to those who are around grade 3 standard the chance to play their instruments.

To get involved, please register on the Music Service website, this week, and come along with your instrument on Saturday afternoon.

Sarah Fletcher, Assistant Head of Wolverhampton Music Service, said: “We all know how important music has been to everyone’s wellbeing over the last 2 years in particular. There is nothing more satisfying for a musician than playing in a group with others, and it’s such good fun, so please join us for our TRY day this weekend.”

Councillor Dr Michael Hardacre, the City of Wolverhampton Council’s Cabinet Member for Education and Skills, said: “Wolverhampton Music Service is continuing to reach out to children and young people across the city with new music-making opportunities, and Saturday’s TRY day is a great chance for pupils whose learning may have been disrupted by the pandemic to join with others for an afternoon of music-making.”

Wolverhampton Music Service provides quality teaching for children and young people across the city, including the chance to perform with one of its 13 groups – bands, orchestras, choirs, percussion groups. To find out more, please visit the Music Service website.
