KS3 Concerts

The CBSO provides annual concerts at Symphony Hall for KS3 pupils. These concerts feature the whole of the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, an amazing spectacle itself, but in the awe inspiring surroundings of Symphony Hall these concerts are sure to have a lasting impact on pupils attending.

These concerts provide pupils with a snapshot of orchestral repertoire, introduced by an experienced presenter, and showcasing the different sections and instruments of the orchestra, through a range of orchestral music from the classical era to the sounds of today - ensuring that there really is something for everyone!

In 2020 the CBSO is presenting KS3: Feel the Music...
Joy, terror, deep calm and edge-of-the seat thrills – the symphony orchestra is the  greatest machine ever invented for expressing human emotion. And in this hour-long Schools’ Concert , specially devised for students in Key Stage Three, conductor Michael Seal, presenter Tim Redmond and 80 world-class musicians won’t hold back, as Berlioz, Prokofiev, Tchaikovsky and Arvo Pärt wear their hearts on their sleeves!

Tickets for KS3 concerts are priced at £6 per person, with 2 free tickets for organisers of groups of 20+. There is a £3 transaction fee per booking.

Prior to your visit you could have a visit from a CBSO musician to introduce pupils to the orchestra and help prepare them for the concert. Take a look at our ‘Meet the CBSO’ project for more details.
