Take Off

A programme launched in 2015/16 to create, develop & inspire new in-school ensembles.

In partnership with Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, we were delighted to announce the launch of Take Off; this exciting programme offered schools the opportunity to work with BSO musicians throughout a school term, to either create a new or develop an existing ensemble.

Suitable for primary music coordinators or subject leads, each school was supported by one of the BSO’s Associate musician; the programme included an initial twilight CPD session (shared with colleagues from 5 other schools), three in school workshops and an end of term performance. The work was tailored to each school but set within the Primary Music Network giving each lead the opportunity to network, consider shared performance opportunities and build a culture of local creative practice.

We are currently in discussion with the BSO about future activities.
