Spring Play-Along Day

CBSO Play-Along Day – Friday 13th April 2018

The CBSO are delighted to present our Spring Play-Along Day, where young musicians 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 Sibelius' Finlandia and John Williams' Jurassic Park Main Theme.

This full day session will include sectional coaching on the selected repertoire during the morning followed by tutti rehearsals in the afternoon, with CBSO musicians 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.
