Are you a young musician playing violin, viola, cello or double bass, playing at approximately grade 2
to grade 5?
Penwith boasts two lively, fun and successful string orchestras where young people share
their enjoyment of string playing, learn a wide range of music from different styles and ages, and
experience the buzz of making music together and giving regular concerts.
Penzance Junior Strings rehearsals are fun and informative – a sharing time for young musicians.
But the group also give regular concerts in Penzance and further afield. Highlights have included
performing alongside the BBC Concert Orchestra at Plymouth Pavilions and performing at the Music
