CBSO Project Remix 2022

The CBSO is looking to recruit around 60 instrumentalists aged 11-18 (in school Years 7 – 13) to take part in Project Remix. Project Remix fuses well-known music with contemporary orchestral arrangements. Each year, the project has a musical theme and in previous years the Orchestra has performed the music of Led Zepplin, UB40, Barry Manilow, and BRIT-Nominated CBSO Youth Orchestra alum Laura Mvula. This year we are celebrating and exploring Birmingham’s rich cultural and musical heritage, and the repertoire will include a range of recent releases written and performed by popular South Asian artists.

Project Remix is open to instrumentalists who are Grade 5 standard or above. Participation in this project is FREE OF CHARGE, however places are limited. There is no audition, but musicians need to apply online. Participants will be mentored through weekly rehearsals by a team of CBSO musicians before culminating in a live performance in the spectacular surroundings of Symphony Hall on Sunday 20th February 2022. For further information and to apply, please visit: Project Remix – City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra (cbso.co.uk). Please note that the application deadline is Wednesday 8th December 2021.
