Britten Sinfonia Academy

Britten Sinfonia Academy from washmedia on Vimeo.

Britten Sinfonia Academy was established back in 2011 and is now in its third year. Working with young, talented, secondary school age players from the East of England, the Academy focuses on aspects that make Britten Sinfonia unique: playing without conductor, mixing up genres and playing in different styles, performing in small chamber groups, improvising, composing and exploring new music as well as working with inspiring special guests. Young musicians are encouraged to take creative responsibility for their music-making, developing leadership skills than enable them to collaborate and work democratically within an ensemble.

At Britten Sinfonia Academy we are passionate about music and working collaboratively to input creative ideas and we have fun doing it.


"As a result of participating in Britten Sinfonia Academy this year I have developed the ability to think musically for myself and voice opinions more in rehearsals."- Britten Sinfonia Academy musician 2014

 

Academy members are also offered exclusive opportunities to see Britten Sinfonia in rehearsals and discounted tickets to Britten Sinfonia concerts throughout the year. Find out more using the menu on the left and feel free to contact us with any questions at academy@brittensinfonia.com.
