String Play-Along Day

CBSO String Play-Along Day – Sunday 2nd February 2020

The CBSO are delighted to present our adult string play-along day, where amateur adult string players will have the opportunity to be coached by, and play amongst, members of the CBSO.

This is a fantastic opportunity to work with some of the UK’s foremost orchestral musicians, conducted by George Jackson, on core orchestral repertoire including Purcell’s Chaconne (arr. Britten), Warlock’s Capriol Suite and Elgar’s Introduction and Allegro.

This full day session will include sectional coaching on the selected repertoire during the morning, followed by tutti rehearsals with CBSO string players joining each section to provide ongoing mentoring throughout the rehearsal process.

Attendance at the day costs £90 per person. Places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis, however ensemble balance will be taken into account. Please note, we ask that participants are a minimum of grade 5 standard and are aged 18 and over.

Application deadline: Friday 10th January 2020. 

1 F7 A5881.

The day will be held at the CBSO’s own rehearsal space - CBSO Centre, Berkley Street, Birmingham, B1 2LF from 10.30 – 17.00.
