The CBSO is committed to supporting and developing the musical education of children and young people, building their skills as creators and performers, expanding their musical interests and experiences, and inspiring a lifelong appreciation of live performance.

We provide opportunities for children and young people at all stages of their education – from early years groups to university students – through a varied programme of opportunities ranging from workshops by individual musicians in schools, to orchestral concerts at Symphony Hall.

In addition to our schools offer, the CBSO also provides £5 tickets for schools, youth ensembles and young people’s groups to all of our Birmingham concerts*.

We are grateful to the Clive and Sylvia Richards Charity, Principal Supporter of the CBSO’s work with young people.
