Joining a group or ensemble is a great way to develop your learning and perform with other musicians and in front of audiences. There are over 50 performing ensembles in Surrey for beginners and the experienced musician both youth and adults. These include area and county ensembles as well as youth and adult choirs.

Our music groups offer young people a chance to rehearse and perform with others, make new friends and improve their playing. Groups and ensembles rehearse once a week, and perform a number of times each year in schools and professional venues.

Local groups can also be found in our Search Tool or our partner Making Music's website.
