The Caithness Junior Orchestra is an exciting opportunity for young musicians aged 8 and over to meet and play together every week with conductor Susie Dingle.
The orchestra meets at Mount Pleasant Primary School, Thurso, from 4pm to 5pm on Mondays during term time. New members are welcome to join the orchestra at any time during the year.
The orchestra is open to participants from pre-grade 1 to grade 5+ from all schools in the area and we also welcome home-educated children.
If your child would like to join the Caithness Junior Orchestra as a brand new member, please print off and complete the Membership form and send it to us. There are no auditions and no minimum entry requirements. Everybody is welcome.

In 2016 and 2017, the Caithess Junior Orchestra collaborated with an organisation called Hear My Music to bring inclusive music making to a wider audience in Caithness and Orkney. Here's a clip
from the BBC Radio 3 show, Music Matters, which featured our project.
Our orchestra welcomes new members throughout the year and we would love to hear from you!
