XY Strings, so-called because it used to be run by Guildford YMCA, is now supported by Guildford United Reformed Church, and particularly by the church’s Music Society, which has a special interest in promoting music-making by young people. We are very grateful to the church for the use of its premises, in which we meet on Tuesday evenings in term-time from 6.15 – 7.15.
XY is essentially a teaching group for junior string players (of all ages!) of approximate standard Grades 2 – 5, with some very welcome help from a number of more experienced players.
New members are always welcome; just contact Gillian Lloyd. We present a Carol Evening at Christmas and play in local music festivals, and have given six Summer Concerts in aid of the GURC Malawi Education Project.
XY Strings have their own website: http://www.xystrings.org/
