Participants will rehearse music with players of a similar standard in a variety of ensembles and the morning will end with all the participating young people playing an especially selected piece all together. All of the tutors and conductors are professional teachers employed by North Somerset Councils Music Service, who will ensure everyone really enjoys playing in their ensemble.
On Saturday 9th July the 46 brilliant young musicians that form the North Somerset Sinfonia, the premier symphony orchestra of the North Somerset Centre for Young Music enthralled the audience in Symphony Hall, Birmingham.
Under the director of their conductor Tim Harrison the orchestra performed by invitation at the National Festival of Music for Youth. After regional festivals around the country only a small number of ensembles were selected to perform in each of the National Festivals categories. The North Somerset Sinfonia were selected to perform alongside Cornwall Youth Orchestra, Carmarthenshire County Orchestra, Gloucestershire Youth Orchestra, Birmingham Schools’ Concert Orchestra, Tees Valley Youth Orchestra and Watford School of Music Youth Orchestra.
