​The CBSO is looking to recruit around 60 instrumentalists aged 11-18 (in school Years 7 - 13) to take part in Project Remix.

Project Remix fuses well-known music with contemporary orchestral arrangements. Each year, the project has a musical theme and in previous years the Orchestra has performed the music of Led Zepplin, UB40, Barry Manilow, and BRIT-Nominated CBSO Youth Orchestra alum Laura Mvula. This year we are celebrating and exploring Birmingham’s rich cultural and musical heritage, and the repertoire will include a range of recent releases written and performed by popular South Asian 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 weekly rehearsals by a team of CBSO musicians before culminating in a live performance in the spectacular surroundings of Symphony Hall on Sunday 20th February 2022.

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. Please note applications close on Wednesday 8 December 2021.

Places will be allocated once applications close. If you have any questions or need any further information, please contact Helen Poulter on hpoulter@cbso.co.uk or 0121 616 6500.
