Take Off

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

In partnership with Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, we’re delighted to announce the launch of Take Off; this exciting programme offers 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 will be supported by one of the BSO’s Associate musician; the programme includes an initial twilight CPD session (shared with colleagues from 5 other schools), three in school workshops and an end of term performance. The work will be tailored to each school but set within the Primary Music Network giving each lead the opportunity to network, consider shared performance opportunities and to build a culture of local creative practice.

The autumn term for 2015 is now fully subscribed; we are though recruiting 10 more schools for Spring and Summer term; to download the poster click here or to register an Expression of Interest for 2016, please email michael.armstrong@bournemouth.gov.uk
