The Training String Orchestra consists of violin, viola, cello and double bass players from approaching grade two to grade three plus standard. Most members have previously played in the Elementary String Orchestra, but players of the required standard are welcome to join. The ensemble plays a wide variety of music, sometimes including percussion, and each term joins with the Junior Youth Orchestra to give a concert in the Main Hall at the Albemarle Music Centre. Entry is by teacher recommendation, normally in September and January each year.
The orchestra rehearses on Wednesday evenings from 6.00 pm until 7.30 pm in the Rehearsal Room at the Albemarle Music Centre.
