Engagement with music has the power to build confidence, develop practical skills and give young people a new outlet for their focus and talents. Our ensemble experience does this, and more! This is why, every year, we bring together over 2,000 young musicians from across Birmingham, to form over 95 ensembles that are specifically designed to cater for all genres and abilities. This includes performance opportunities for our ensemble children like our Festive Concerts.
