Music is proven to bring social and health benefits to the lives of people, and at BSO we believe everyone should be able to have the chance to create and perform music others.

Run by our BSO Associate, Hugh Nankivell, members shape the music, explore new ways to create sound and enjoy the social element of music in a comfortable environment.

Family Orchestra provides a common meeting ground, regardless of music taste, experience or ability. It promotes shared experiences across generations and provides a musical family for those living on their own.

Although these sessions are free to attend, places are limited and therefore, we do ask that you complete the following registration form for each term. Please note, by completing this registration form, you are not committed to attending every session.

Please note that the sessions on Sunday 22 March and Sunday 3 May include an informal sharing for friends and family.
