Side By Side - String Play-Along Day

CBSO String Play-Along Day – Sunday 11th February 2018

The CBSO are delighted to present our first 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 the CBSO’s Assistant Conductor Jonathan Bloxham, on core orchestral repertoire including Tchaikovsky’s Serenade for Strings.

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.

The day will conclude with an informal final sharing performance to enable participants to share their work from the day with friends and family.

The CBSO relies on donations to keep the music going. Credit: Andrew Fox.

The day will be held at the CBSO’s own rehearsal space - CBSO Centre, Berkley Street, Birmingham, B1 2LF from 10.00 – 17.00.

Applications are no longer being accepted for this project.
