Project Remix fuses well known chart hits with orchestral arrangements. This year’s theme is ‘Latin Favourites’ and the repertoire will include modern classics such as Copacabana, La Bamba and Peanut Vendor.
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.
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.
The rehearsal schedule will be confirmed upon offer of place. In the main, all rehearsals will take place 18:00 – 20:00 at the CBSO Centre on Tuesday evenings throughout the Spring Term. In addition, percussion workshops will be held 18:00 – 20:00 at the CBSO centre on Thursday evenings in January. Please note that all participants will be required for the final performance at Symphony Hall on Sunday 24th March 2019.
