Lowry Strings is a friendly and supportive string orchestra for adult players of violin, viola, cello and double bass. It is suitable for adult returners, those learning an instrument as an adult and those not quite ready to join a full orchestra. We cater for mixed abilities and new members are always welcome. You'll get good training in ensemble playing and orchestral technique. Our rehearsals are fun under the kindly guidance of our Musical Director who is also our orchestral tutor.
Our MD/Tutor often writes special arrangements to enable members to improve at different levels on their various instruments.
We rehearse Friday evenings, term-time only,in Monton Eccles. We give two informal concerts a year for family and friends. Entrance is free, but we hope your friends and family would give generously at the retiring collection, as all proceeds go to charity.
Our members come from a wide area of the North West - Greater Manchester, Lancashire and Cheshire.
All new members get the first three weeks free of charge. After this, fees are paid on a termly basis. The fees cover the hire of the room, Musical Director's fees and music .

Unsolicited comment from a member of the audience in the Summer 2016 concert (2nd July):
"It's not just a concert. It's educational and entertaining as well. The funny little stories he tells to introduce the pieces really help me to connect with the music and make it more enjoyable."
Learn, improve and have fun at the same time.
