Free music taster sessions for children and young people

As the Winter of Wellbeing programme for children and young people enters its final week, Bridgend County Borough Council’s Music Service has confirmed that it is restarting ensembles for students in years 7-13 at school who are of grade one standard and above.

A series of free taster sessions will be available first between 6pm-8pm at Coleg Cymunedol Y Dderwen in Tondu.

These will take place on Tuesday 22, Friday 25, Tuesday 29 March and Friday 1 April.

The ensembles will be split into instrumental families e.g. brass, strings, woodwind etc. and attendees will need to pre-register for each date that they plan to attend.

Attendees will also need to bring along a music stand (if available) and wear a face mask on arrival / departure and for communal areas.

Bridgend Music Service will also seek to open the ensembles to primary learners after the Easter holidays – look out for more details soon.
