Virtuoso Strings Charitable Trust
Virtuoso Strings is a youth orchestra made up of over 160 students from eleven different decile 1 and decile 2 schools in Porirua, Wellington region. Driven by the values of accessibility, excellence and community, we aim to ensure that every student with a passion for music has the opportunity to learn and grow.
Rehearsing frequently as a group, with additional music classes in partnering schools as well as after school and during the holidays, we have a thriving community of students who are driven to do their best, and help others grow too.
There are clear links between learning a musical instrument, personal growth, and academic success. Through providing lessons and a space to operate as a group orchestra, we are equipping our students with life long skills, and a taste for self belief.
