Situation

As music provision in schools and local authorities is affected by funding cuts, young musicians are struggling to find opportunities to perform in high quality orchestral ensembles. With fewer young musicians pursuing their musical education, the future of live performance is under threat. We are well positioned to address this challenge. By delivering inspirational performance and training opportunities for young people from the West Midlands a new generation of musicians can flourish.

Solution

Project Remix provides 120 young musicians with an opportunity to form a full size orchestra and chorus, learning specially commissioned repertoire that fuses classical performance with pop music. Participants will meet weekly for rehearsals and coaching with CBSO musicians, culminating in a public performance of classic disco and funk tracks at Symphony Hall. A further 70 musicians will take part in an inspirational and motivational ‘Come and Play’ day with CBSO mentors.
