CBSO Ensemble Performances in School

Schools don’t have to wait until the CBSO arranges our annual Key Stage 3 concerts, you can have a performance in school from one of our amazing small ensembles. These concerts can be accessed by a specific year group, or the whole school, and provide a fabulous introduction to live performance by some of the world’s best musicians.

Performances don’t just include classical music, our ensembles also will perform arrangements of music familiar to your pupils from film and TV as well as introducing them to the individual instruments, providing background information about pieces and composers, and provide simple introductions to the composition techniques and styles being performed.

We have ensembles of all shapes and sizes, from string trios to brass quintets, and ensembles that combine wind, strings and brass for a miniature orchestral experience. Performances last for approximately an hour, and a member of the CBSO’s Learning and Participation team would be delighted to discuss your requirements and match you up with the right group for your school. With prices starting at just £350 why not have the CBSO come to you?
