Our new Youth Ambassadors programme is an opportunity for young people aged between 16 and 21 who want to share their curiosity and discoveries around live orchestral music.

This one-year volunteer programme has been launched to coincide with the CBSO’s 100th Birthday in 2020. Youth Ambassadors will have the opportunity to work creatively, develop a reflective approach, build leadership skills, and develop proficiency in media, communications, advocacy and presenting.

Selected Youth Ambassadors will be provided with tickets to CBSO concerts; get and the chance to meet and interview artists; receive work experience opportunities; and operate as an advisory group feeding into the CBSO’s wider engagement strategy. Our 2019-20 Youth Ambassadors will also have an incredible opportunity to programme and present a CBSO Concert - with full orchestra - in January 2020. Applications for this year’s Youth Ambassadors programme are open now, and close on Monday 24 June at 12 noon.

Please note that applications for the Youth Ambassadors Programme have now closed.
