Britten Sinfonia regularly release films about our work and concerts. These include behind the scenes footage, interviews and concert performances.

Phoenix School Creative Orchestra Project: Graphic Scores

The Phoenix School Creative Orchestra Project was lead by Duncan Chapman with Bridget Carey (viola), Jack McNeill (clarinet) and Tim Gunnell (percussion). It involved 14 students with special educational needs and disabilities. This video shows a series of graphic scores the participants created which were then performed by the Britten Sinfonia musicians.

The project was funded by Peterborough Music Hub and Phoenix School.
