One of the key drivers for young musicians to continue learning their instrument is performing with others.

In BSO massed ensembles, students across the region come together to perform repertoire suitable for absolute beginners through to professionals, sitting side-by-side with our musicians, school or music hub tutors and their peers.

Performers experience the joy of performing with others whilst gaining confidence and skills in their own playing. Peer learning also enables young musicians to see how their playing can progress in the future.

An epic project, an amazing experience for them all, thank you!
