Location

Situation

Orchestra Unwrapped intends to break down any barriers prohibiting the enjoyment of, and engagement with, classical music. The programme reaches thousands of children who are unlikely to otherwise have the opportunity to hear a professional symphony orchestra.

Solution

Launched in 2011, Orchestra Unwrapped has offered over 13,000 children in Leicester the opportunity to hear the Orchestra live, and equip them with the educational resources to enhance their understanding, appreciation and enjoyment of music. In 2017, we would like to extend its scope to include Orchestra Unwrapped concerts in Basingstoke, Bedford and Canterbury with the concert programme of City, Town and Place to draw together repertoire associated to that particular location.

  • Orchestra Unwrapped was really awesome. I thought the music was relaxing for a moment... then it made you want to dance

  • I enjoyed listening to Jaws because it was played live and the feeling of it was very tingling. It made the hairs on my neck stand in excitement.
