The Corinium Players Guitar Ensemble is a registered charity run by an executive committee governed by a constitution.
The Charities objectives are:
a) to advance the education of classical guitarists of all ages.
b) to advance the education of the public in the art of classical guitar
c) to encourage children and young people to play classical guitar
The Corinium Players Guitar Ensemble was established in Cirencester in 1999 by Sandra Dukes, to create an opportunity for classical guitarists to develop their musical skills and perform as an ensemble.
The Ensemble today comprises a junior, intermediate and senior section who also combine into a unique Guitar Orchestra.
The junior group are mostly of Primary School age. Playing together is a new musical experience for them and does much to build their confidence both as group and solo players.
The intermediate group, who in addition to developing their musical skills, are gaining experience by performing as an ensemble in concerts and festivals.
The senior group include more advanced children. This group regularly perform at charity events and local functions.
