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 with others.

Run by our BSO Associate Musicians, 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.

I think for groups of people to do music together is the most important thing!
