Learning to play a musical instrument or sing is a fantastic thing to do; but playing music with other musicians is when the fun really begins - it also improves your playing.
Dudley Performing Arts ensembles have performed both locally and nationally. We regularly play in the region and have performed at Symphony Hall and many other prestigious venues. Our groups have toured in this country and abroad including appearances at the Royal Albert Hall.
If you play an instrument or sing there is something for you in the Dudley Music Education Hub with groups, bands and ensembles for all instruments and all levels of ability.
To join a group we ask for a level of playing ability based on the Grades system although it’s not necessary to have passed the actual exam.
From April 19th groups will return to a weekly 'face to face rehearsal' at our base at Resonance on the waterfront at Brierley Hill. Current Covid guidance limits group size to 15 and some groups will be operating a rota system for the first few weeks until the guidance is relaxed. if you wish to join a group as a new member or a 'returner' following lock down please make sure you have enrolled and have conformation of a place before attending.
Our performance groups are open to children and young people who live in the Dudley Borough or attend one of our schools/colleges. There is no audition process, simply identify the group that is relevant to you and come along.
For more information about joining one of our groups please speak to your instrument or vocal teacher, someone at your school or contact Dudley Performing Arts.
