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.


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