What will I get out of it?

Britten Sinfonia is a world class chamber orchestra with roots in the East of England. We regularly play in Cambridge, Norwich, Barbican in London and all over the world.

We love exploring new music, performing concerts where we mix old and new music together, and creating programmes with exciting connections between pieces. We are excited by the way we work, and want to pass on some of these skills and our way of working to younger players.

What will members get out of it?
Working alongside members of Britten Sinfonia who will be the lead tutors on Britten Sinfonia Academy projects, we will give the Academy members experiences of

  • playing as a chamber orchestra, often without a conductor
  • leading and working collaboratively, where your ability to be part of the team and contribute your musical ideas is key
  • playing in small chamber groups
  • discovering new repertoire and contemporary composers
  • being inspired by guest artists and their ways of working
  • understanding how the professional ensemble works with opportunities to hear the orchestra in rehearsals and concerts
  • mentoring from a Britten Sinfonia musician
  • exclusive high-profile performance opportunities
