Welcome to the official Isle of Wight Music Centre website. This site is managed and maintained by the Friends’ Association and provides a resource for students, parents, and teachers with up to date information and news regarding the Isle of Wight Music Centre.
The Isle of Wight Music Centre aims to cater for those young people who seek opportunities for music making in their leisure time in addition to those provided at school. In all groups young people will find enthusiasm and encouragement along with specialist coaching from Isle of Wight Music Service staff.
Indeed, it is the policy of the Music Centre that the members are given as wide an experience of music making as possible – there are Wind Bands, Brass Bands, Choirs, Orchestras, String groups, keyboard classes and recorder ensembles who all undertake regular performances.
Music performed is taken from the standard orchestral repertoire as well as recent light
classics and film music.
Other activities are held which may include social events, chamber music weekends, recordings (involving extra sessions) and concert tours abroad for the senior groups are arranged from time to time.
Visitors are always welcome on Saturdays – do join us for a cup of coffee. We look forward to seeing you at all our events and concerts.
