Music Service

Ensembles and Performing Opportunities

  • Only pupils who display clear evidence of loyalty and commitment to music making within their school, where such opportunities are available, may attend ensembles provided by the service.
  • Evidence of loyalty and commitment to county ensembles provided by the service is required before any pupil can progress at 3 Counties or National level.
  • A pupil or student must be an existing member of county ensemble before Pembrokeshire will endorse any application for National Ensembles.
  • The service has no objection to pupils attending other non-service ensembles. Indeed, it would encourage pupils to get involved in as much music making as possible. Any pupil, however who attends other ensembles at the expense of those of the service will be considered to have opted out of the system, and will consequently not qualify for any County or National Ensemble.
