Ensembles and Music Centres

B&NES Music Service Ensembles run during term time only, on selected dates,  and perform regularly throughout the year (view the calendars by clicking on the links below or refine your search above).

If you would like to try out an ensemble, all you need to do is come along and report to a member of staff. Quote BMS50 on your application form to enjoy up to 50% off your first term’s fees!

We are now accepting applications for Autumn 2019. Simply arrive at your chosen ensemble for a free trial session. The Senior Ensembles (Brass Tacks, Schools Philharmonic Orchestra, Cantilena & Senior Wind Band) will require an audition, which will take place in September. Once we have received your application form we will send you confirmation of your audition date and time. You can find more information about these auditions on the form. If you would like to audition for one of the senior ensembles, please fill out the form here and return it to B&NES Music Hub, Lewis House, Manvers Street, Bath BA1 1JG.
