Join the BBC Concert Orchestra and Coventry Music Education Hub for our exciting Family Orchestra & Chorus project as part of BBC Music’s Biggest Weekend Fringe.

The Coventry Family Orchestra and Chorus is an ensemble for all ages, instruments or ability, as well as singers. It’s a chance for families to make music together, joining members of the BBC Concert Orchestra in a series of fun, family-friendly workshops. You don’t need to be able to read music.

You and your family will have the chance to work with members of the BBC Concert Orchestra to create a brand new piece of music, ready to perform to your friends and family. 

It’s free to take part, and open to anyone aged 7+. All participants under the age of 16 must be accompanied throughout by a parent or guardian aged 18 or above.

To take part in this project you will need to commit to the following dates and all those involved in these workshops and performance will be offered a ticket to the BBC Music’s Biggest Weekend.
