Meet the Orchestra is a free pre-concert event specifically designed for schools to give an informative insight to the inner workings of a professional orchestra.

Presented by a member of the BSO Participate team, Meet the Orchestra provides students with an opportunity to learn about the business of an orchestra and about the evening’s programme and meet BSO musicians before watching them perform in a concert.

Young people get the opportunity to learn about all the skills needed on and off the stage and to run an orchestra which will give them valuable information on possible career pathways in the Arts. Meet the Orchestra happens before concerts that contain relevance to current music GCSE and A level syllabuses, so that they can bring their curriculum to life.

Please note you are required to purchase your concert tickets separately for this performance, you can only receive the ticket offer by calling the Lighthouse box office on 01202 280000, to see more about the concert please click here.
