Do you play an instrument? Whether you’re a violinist, flautist, percussionist or tuba player (or anything in between), come and join our orchestra! There are two dedicated music concerts per year, alongside other cross college performance opportunities in the year. Ideally, you’ll be Grade 4 standard or above on your instrument, and there is no audition process. It is strongly recommended that A Level music students join the orchestra.
There are also opportunities to take on the role of section leader and lead splinter groups within the orchestra.
Joining the orchestra also gives you access to discounted Music Peri lessons at the college (please see more info on Music Lessons).
• Playing a range of pieces from Classical to Film Music, Musical Theatre and Pop Music
• Potential opportunity for ensemble leading of your section.
• We also welcome pianists/keyboardists, guitarists, bassists and drummers and will try to accommodate everyone’s instrument in the choice of repertoire.
Timetabled session in the theatre every Wednesday 14:50-16:00.
Ensemble performance, a range of repertoire from Christmas music to stage and screen.
You will need your own instrument, Grade 4 or above standard. There are no other associated costs but there are opportunities for subsidy of music lessons.
My experience at Wyke has been an overwhelming success. I thought that moving from a small school to a larger college would be a daunting experience yet it wasn’t at all. Everyone is so friendly and approachable. Flyers has provided me with so many useful skills and experiences which I will never forget.
The independence and opportunity to meet new people was why I chose to study my A Levels at the College. I enjoyed being able to complete an EPQ as it allowed me to research and write about a topic I found interesting.
I knew Wyke was the College I wanted to study at because I felt it had a much more mature and relaxed environment than other colleges. I knew I wanted to study Human, Social and Political Sciences at university and my teachers and Flyers mentor offered me additional support sessions to further develop my knowledge in these areas.
I was attracted to studying at Wyke because it offered me with many opportunities that would allow me to progress into Higher Education. Being a Flyer I have gained invaluable skills, experiences and support with my personal statement for university.
