After an enforced break, NBO are arranging a Strings Workshop Day on Sunday 30th May 2021 between 10am and 4pm at The Stoller Hall, Manchester to rehearse and play through string ensemble repertoire from the Baroque and Classical eras, with tuition by Louise Latham. The pieces are:

  • Handel's Concerto Grosso Op. 6 No. 1 in G major

  • Mozart's Divertimenti in D major (K. 136), B flat major (K. 137) and F major (K. 138)

All strings players are welcome, although we recommend they have a playing standard of ABRSM Grade 7 or higher. To apply, either email us at or use our contact form to give your name, instrument and approximate playing grade. The price for playing is £25.
