Britten Sinfonia Academy is for young musicians of secondary school age, from the East of England. Britten Sinfonia Academy takes place through intensive weekend courses for young musicians focusing on the things that make Britten Sinfonia unique:

  • playing without a conductor
  • mixing up genres and playing in different styles
  • performing in small chamber groups
  • working with inspiring special guests
  • improvising, composing, exploring new music

Courses are designed and run by members of Britten Sinfonia, giving Academy members opportunities to work and play with some of the UK’s best chamber musicians.
