APPLICATIONS FOR ELEVATE 2 NOW CLOSED – Given the amazing success of Elevate’s first virtual ensemble project, we are excited to see Elevate grow and are proud to announce the arrival of Elevate’s second project in partnership with CHJ Music.
This virtual ensemble is a wonderful opportunity for school age learners of any orchestral instrument to join together, learn and perform an uplifting piece. You’ll be provided with the score for your instrument and grade and have the chance to practice, record it and then be part of a final ensemble performance that will go live.
The process will be led by Claire Jones who has substantial experience teaching music to children and young people. Using the resources available below, ensemble members will produce video performances of their instrumental parts. All video performances will then be sent back to Claire who will create one final video showcasing the collaboration of all the virtual performers as a keepsake of this fun and valuable experience.
Research has shown that, in addition to the obvious positive impact on wellbeing, the numerous educational benefits of music include improving mental alertness, boosting memory and IQ and improving focus and persistence. Practising music can therefore greatly assist in navigating all the new learning experiences we are facing at the moment.
It is FREE to join Elevate and is available to learners within the BCP area from beginners up to advanced level. There are ONLY 120 SPACES available so please apply via the APPLICATION FORM to take part in this engaging, inspirational project. In order to create a rounded ensemble, the various families of instruments will be allocated a certain number of places for the second project. These places will be given on a first come, first served basis and the deadline to apply is 19th May 2021. You will be notified as to whether you have a place after 19th May 2021 at which point a password will be sent to participating members in order for them to access the learning materials and backing track.
Applications for Elevate’s 2nd project are now closed but if you would like to be informed of future opportunities and get involved, please fill out the APPLICATION FORM. We look forward to welcoming existing and new Elevate members.
