The Yehudi Menuhin School has always valued our commitment to working with the wider community, using our various areas of expertise to enhance musical education and the world of the Arts in general. As lead members of the Surrey Music Hub, we are continuing with this work in the coming academic year, and current projects include:

Come and Play days

A valued opportunity for young performers aged between 5 and 16 to come and play to one of the Menuhin School teachers. There are also group aural sessions, a concert, and a tour of the School.

Our next Come and Play Day is Sunday 24 September.

Programme for the day (provisional):

1.30pm Registration

1.40pm Introductory talk in The Menuhin Hall

2.00pm Classes begin

4.00pm Concert

4.30pm Final classes

During the afternoon, every participant will receive a 20-minute individual lesson with a Menuhin School teacher, and an aural/vocal class with one of the General Music staff. Additionally there will be tours of the school, led by current students, and refreshments will be available throughout the afternoon in the Hall Foyer when there is a gap in your schedule.

Parents are welcome to observe any of the classes.

A detailed schedule showing precise timings of the classes you are involved in will be sent out shortly before the day.

To apply, please download and return the application form by Friday 15 September 2017.

You can also download the Come and Play flyer.

Come and Sing

Choral singers are invited to come and sing in a scratch performance of one of the great choral works, accompanied by the Menuhin School's orchestra.

Outreach concerts

Visits to homes for the elderly have been a feature of concert programming for many years, with groups of the School's pupils giving concerts of up to one hour in length and afterwards talking to the residents.

Schools Concerts

An end-of-year Schools Concert is given each July in The Menuhin Hall. The varied programme, which includes solo and orchestral items, and audience participation, is designed to help children learn and listen to music.

Chance to Play

Every week, one of our violin teachers spends the day with students from Cobham Free School teaching violin and general music skills - and a great deal of fun is had by all!

At the end of the academic year the group then participates in our Primary Schools concerts to which local primary schools are invited.
