Bromsgrove Amateur Strings (formerly Chaddesley Strings and Junior Strings) began its life in 2005 near Chaddesley Corbett in Worcestershire but now rehearses on Saturday mornings in Bromsgrove. All are welcome – no audition necessary! Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you are interested in joining, or would like to come along for a taster session!
The orchestra was formed for adults & children to explore string orchestra repertoire. The standard of the players currently ranges from about Grade 3 to Grade 8, and the group is a very friendly one! We have taken part in the Bromsgrove Autumn Fair and Worcester Festival as well as joint concerts with Bromsgrove Choral Society and others.
Past and present repertoire includes:
Handel, Concerto Grossi
Corelli, Christmas Concerto
Warlock, Capriol Suite
Elgar, Six Very Easy Pieces (arrangement)
Bartok Romanian Dances (arrangement)
Pleyel, Duo (arrangement)
Bach Cappriccio (arrangement)
Various Scottish Reels and other folk music
