How to Join

To join our intermediate and advanced groups, an audition is required. Audition requirements for each group can be found on our "About Our Ensembles" page.
  • Visit a Rehearsal

    Interested young musicians are welcome to attend a rehearsal at any time. This is a great way to see what we're all about! An audition can be arranged on the same day, or for a later date.
  • Come to our Open House

    In May, we host an open house for prospective players and their families. This is an interactive workshop where your child will learn a new tune from current NSCE students while parents attend an info session about our programs. Auditions for our Strings & Things novice programs are available on the spot, or can be arranged for a later date. We wrap up the evening with a fun and casual performance of what we've learned!
    Where: Upper Lynn Elementary, North Vancouver

    When: 6:30 - 8:00, Tuesday, May 7th, 2019 (Please arrive on time so your child has the chance to participate fully)

    What to bring: Your instrument!
