XY Strings, so-called because it used to be run by Guildford YMCA, is now supported by Guildford United Reformed Church, and particularly by the church’s Music Society, which has a special interest in promoting music-making by young people. We are very grateful to the church for the use of its premises, in which we meet on Tuesday evenings in term-time from 6.00 – 7.15.
XY is essentially a teaching group for junior string players (of all ages!) of approximate standard Grades 2 – 5, with some very welcome help from a number of more experienced players.
We present a Carol Evening at Christmas, play in local music festivals, and give Summer Concerts.
New members are always welcome - just contact Gillian on firstname.lastname@example.org.
