Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra String Quintet

West Dorset schools, Woodroffe, Sir John Colfox and Beaminster were visited by the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra String Quintet recently to build energy and excitement around string playing. We offered young people the opportunity to hear professional string players and have a chance to try the instrument.

Following these performances, Andy Baker and Carol Lilley led a series of workshops in the schools in the lead up to a final performance for students to play alongside the professionals.

The young people that took part been directed to attend further local events including the B-Sharp Musical inclusion project.
