Project Remix fuses well known chart hits with orchestral arrangements. Last year’s theme was ‘Music inspired by David Bowie’ and the repertoire will include modern classics by artists such as Madonna, Lady Gaga, Prince and Annie Lennox. Previous Project Remix themes have included the music of Michael Jackson, rock classics and the music of Broadway.
Open to participants from across the West Midlands, the orchestra is for young players of Grade 5 standard and above in school years Year 7-13. There is no audition, but musicians need to apply online, and CBSO players then select the young people to take part. Participants attend weekly rehearsals during the spring term and are mentored by a team of CBSO musicians through full orchestral and sectional coaching.
Applications are now closed for participation in Project Remix 2018.
