Project Remix

Tune in to Project Remix 2024!

If you're a secondary-school musician in Birmingham and the wider West midlands around Grade 5 (or above), we'd love to hear from you!

In spring 2024, join us to explore the soundtracks of some of the most popular TV shows including Stranger Things, Wednesday, Squid Game and the Umbrella Academy. Participants are all mentored at rehearsals by players from the CBSO over a number of weeks, before they take to the stage to perform at Symphony Hall on Sunday 25 February.

We are still accepting applications for select instruments. Find out more and apply below.

About Project Remix

Each year, Project Remix celebrates a different theme through exciting orchestral arrangements. In the past, we've performed music from MOBO award-winning CBSO Youth Orchestra alum Laura Mvula, as well as celebrating Birmingham's rich cultural heritage with a collection of South Asian hits alongside Bollywood singer Navin Kundra, and sitarist Tommy Khosla. Last year, we explored the music of video games like Final Fantasy, Legend of Zelda and Super Mario Bros.
