Jimena Children’s Orchestra debuts on the 20th

Instruments-Symphony-Orchestra-Posters The Children’s Orchestra of Jimena makes its debut appearance on the evening of Saturday 20th June at the Casa de la Cultura (opposite the Town Hall). Performances are planned for the primary schools on the 18th, though these are not open to the public. The principal event is the culmination of eight months work with the newly-reformed Music School of Jimena.> The School teaches a variety of musical instruments including piano, violin, cello and recorders, as well as classes in aural training and choral work. The teachers at the school, David, Yvonne, Susan and Adriana, have thoroughly enjoyed the challenge of this unique project and are confident that with continued support, this could grow into a prestigious and flourishing organization.>

Very shortly, many of the children will be taking instrumental music examinations run by the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music, an internationally recognized examining board and the premier organisation for these types of musical assessments. This will be the first time for some of the students but for many, it will be their second. The children are very well-prepared and are confident that they will be able to exceed the excellent results obtained from last year’s candidates.

The orchestra came together for the first time in October last year and includes children with ages ranging from 7 to 12 years old. The programme of music for the concert features arrangements of well-known folk melodies and classical tunes and is guaranteed to provide an evening which will be enjoyed by all and we hope that you will take this opportunity to come along, support your local children’s orchestra and enjoy a wonderful hour of music into the bargain.
