Lunchtime Concert: Schola Musica Chamber Orchestra

Lunchtime concerts banner template

Schola Musica is a string chamber orchestra in which young string players learn some of the beautiful string repertoire written by great composers.

The rewards for young musicians playing in such a group are numerous. They learn about leadership, they learn to communicate within a musical setting, how to coordinate bowing and sound and how to develop the music imaginatively. The orchestra also features young soloists, and these roles are shared as the students gain confidence.
Schola is tutored by Margarita Jackson and Lissa Cowie. All students study through NCMA and range in age between about 11 to 17 years. There is no conductor and the students take turns leading their sections.
Schola perform concerts at NCMA and various schools and venues in the region and meet to rehearse at 4 until 5.30 every Thursday afternoon at NCMA. Schola is an ideal environment to prepare students for university.
