The Barn Ensemble dips into the Whale

If you’ve ever dreamt of taking up a musical instrument or reviving those skills from years ago we hope our concert will inspire you.

The Barn Ensemble will present an afternoon of baroque to traditional music, film and world music.

We have an eclectic mixture of musical instruments: cello, flute, guitar, keyboard, tin whistles, violin and even the odd percussion instrument. 

We originated from a Music Network initiative for people over 55 to learn an instrument in partnership with Sonamus.

It became a COVID project starting in January 2021. We now continue to meet weekly to explore and play music together.

The concert in the Whale theatre will showcase the progress we have made – and you won’t believe it – and neither do we!
