Senior School Ensembles
Many pupils form their own bands and Music staff organise a wide variety of ensembles. Large numbers of our musicians reach very high levels and several have gone on to secure places at top music universities and conservatoires. But they all have one thing in common - they all started in ensembles at Bromsgrove School! Below is just a sample of the groups that pupils can get involved in at the Music School.
Senior brass group rehearse on a Wednesday Morning from 8.15am-8.55am. This is a group inclusive of all brass players, whichever standard of playing they are at - whether they have lessons at School or not. If someone is a lapsed brass player, they are also welcome to attend if we can find an instrument for them to play. A mixture of different styles of music is played throughout the year.
The Senior Flute Group is a well established ensemble in the Senior School for flautists at grade six or above. We meet on Tuesdays at 12.50pm and play a very wide range of music including some special arrangements of well known classical, jazz and pop pieces as well as more contemporary flute ensemble repertoire.
Windband is a new group started by Mr Dunlop in September 2014 for any woodwind players in the Senior School who are at grade three or above. We cover a wide range of fun and exciting repertoire including special arrangements of pieces chosen by members of the band. We rehearse on Thursday mornings in Purcell at 8.15am and perform at as many school events as we can.
