Creative Learning

Our Creative Learning programme roots us proudly in the east of England, where we work with schools, families and communities to provide opportunities for the widest possible audience to access high-quality professional music making.

Wherever possible, our programme links to and is inspired by our concert programmes, and its diversity. Like the orchestra’s concert activities, it is the artistic vision, skills and passion of our players which drives our Creative Learning programme. 

On these pages you will find examples of our work with schools, for families, with partner organisations and our OPUS commissioning scheme for composers.  In addition, see our dedicated Britten Sinfonia Academy pages for information on our ensemble for talented musicians of secondary school age in the east of England. We also support young people wishing to achieve an Arts Award
