Every pupil who receives individual or group instruction joins the Coltishall School Orchestra. Parent volunteers assist the orchestra by playing alongside the pupils.
The orchestra practises once a week and performs at a Summer and Winter Concert twice a year. The Y6 students on keyboards and the school choir also participate at the concerts.
The Orchestra is conducted by Mr Rory Marsden. Mr Marsden also teaches whole class recorder lessons to year 3 & 4 and whole class keyboard lessons to year 5 & 6.
