CADENZA

“The popular music centre in the heart of Ealing focused on ensemble playing”.

‘Cadenza’ is now a well-established and popular music centre in the heart of Ealing focusing solely on ensemble playing.

All our packages are subsidised by Arts Council England which enables us to be as inclusive as possible, provide high quality music making supported by professional tutors and conductors, whilst also offering fantastic value for money.

Caroline Swan – Ensemble Development Leader

In line with current government guidelines, we’re very excited to announce that our Cadenza ensembles are now meeting online!

Cadenza Online Workshops are to be held once a month (Saturdays) to rehearse, have fun and keep everyone involved in Cadenza until we can meet again in person.

Our Summer Term workshops will be on; 24th April, 22nd May, 26th June & 3rd July (possible later afternoon/evening performance, government guidance permitting).

This term we will also be rehearsing to work towards another Virtual Orchestra Project (similar to Somewhere Over the Rainbow) in collaboration with a local choir.

If the roadmap out of lockdown all goes to plan, then we could be back to some form of face to face rehearsals from May, and we will hopefully be able to put on a performance (or performances) in July to showcase what the ensembles have achieved.  This will of course need to conform to government guidance and we will be able to provide more information closer to the time.
