The Biggest Weekend Fringe

Are you from a talented family of singers or do you all play instruments? Don't miss out on the Family Orchestra & Chorus project as part of BBC Music's Biggest Weekend Fringe.

The event is being run in association with the BBC Concert Orchestra and Coventry Music Education Hub and a few spaces are still left. The last date to apply is 24 April.

The Coventry Family Orchestra and Chorus is an ensemble for all ages, instruments or ability, as well as singers. It’s a chance for families to make music together, joining members of the BBC Concert Orchestra in a series of fun, family-friendly workshops. You don’t need to be able to read music. You and your family will have the chance to work with members of the BBC Concert Orchestra to create a brand new piece of music, ready to perform to your friends and family. 

It’s free to take part, and open to anyone aged seven and over. All participants under the age of 16 must be accompanied throughout by a parent or guardian aged 18 or above. To take part in this project you will need to commit to all the required dates and all those involved in these workshops and performance will be offered a ticket to the BBC Music’s Biggest Weekend.
