We are fortunate in having two orchestras at St Paul's Juniors. The Second Orchestra offers an introduction to orchestral playing for those who are less experienced as players and may never have played in a larger ensemble. The repertoire includes simple arrangements of classical pieces, and familiar theme tunes from stage and screen.
The First Orchestra presents a challenging repertoire to the more able players, who have to be at least grade 3 standard, though many are well beyond this level. Recent repertoire has included the Slow Movement from Mahler’s First Symphony, Fučík’s Entrance of the Gladiators, and Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue.
