BSO’s free KS2 Schools Concerts are back with our 2023 concert all based around the theme of dance and dancing!

Designed with KS2 students in mind, the thrilling and interactive concerts will be presented by award-winning composer and conductor, James Redwood.  Explore the Orchestra: Dance, Dance, Dance! will showcase the orchestral families, while exploring brilliant examples of how musicians and composers have stretched the boundaries of music. As well as pieces from the world of ballet and some orchestral classics, all the music has been specially chosen to get you moving and James will lead students in his newly composed song.

The concert running time is approximately 1 hour 15 minutes.

The free concert livestream is available until Friday 16 June. Click on the link to book a digital ticket giving access to the stream. Details on how to log in and gain access will be sent.

The concert livestream will be accessible on an encrypted page as an embedded Vimeo video stream. It is best to watch through an up-to-date browser (we recommend Google Chrome on a PC and Safari on an Apple device). You can then connect to your TV or HIFI via a cable connection. An Amazon Firestick is also compatible using the Amazon Silk browser direct on a TV as well as most default browsers on SMART TVs.
There are plenty of ways to get inside the BSO’s music-making, from learning body percussion to seeing the players performkng live, and I can’t wait to share it with you
