Hampshire Music Service Ensembles

The County and Area ensembles are part of a network of 60 groups across Hampshire, run by the Hampshire Music Service. Being a member of a music group is a unique educational experience, which supports good progress in playing or singing, alongside the enjoyment and social rewards of making music together.

We celebrate these achievements in many concerts, festivals and musical events throughout the year.

Hampshire Music Service provides instrumental and vocal teaching to over 29,000 pupils every week and offers a range of ensembles, from beginner groups to county ensembles. Ensemble membership is charged at £20 per term for area ensembles, £30 per term for county ensembles, and you can be part of as many groups as you wish.

Comprehensive information about rehearsals and the requirements needed to join an ensemble are shown in the area ensemble directory and county ensemble listing, whilst details about forthcoming concerts and events, which are organised throughout the year by all of our ensembles, are available in our events diary.
