The CBSO is looking to recruit around 60 instrumentalists aged 11-18 (in school years 7 - 13) to take part in an exciting programme of contemporary pop music, culminating in a performance in the spectacular surroundings of Symphony Hall. This project will take place during the Autumn Term 2019.
Project Remix fuses well-known music with orchestral arrangements. Each year, the project has a musical theme, and in previous years, the Project Remix Orchestra has performed the music of Led Zepplin, UB40, Barry Manilow and BRIT-Nominated CBSO Youth Orchestra alumnus Laura Mvula. This year’s theme is ‘Current Chart Hits’ and the repertoire will include a range of recent releases written and performed by contemporary popular artists.
Project Remix is open to instrumentalists who are Grade 5 standard or above. There is no audition, but musicians need to apply online. Participants will be mentored through rehearsals by a team of CBSO musicians before a performance at Symphony Hall on Sunday 17 November 2019.
Rehearsals will take place from 6-8pm at CBSO Centre on:
- Tuesday 15 October 2019
- Wednesday 16 October 2019
- Tuesday 22 October 2019
- Wednesday 23 October 2019
- Tuesday 5 November 2019
- Tuesday 12 November 2019
Participation in this project is free of charge, however places are limited. If you would like to participate, please register your interest by filling in the online application form. Places will be allocated once applications close. Applications remain open for Viola, Double Bass, and Bass Trombone. Applications for all other instruments have now closed.
If you have any questions or need any further information, please contact Sophie Adams on firstname.lastname@example.org or 0121 616 6546.
