Audition for Tinderbox Orchestra at Hidden Door


Join Edinburgh’s famous Tinderbox Orchestra and perform at one of the most exciting festivals and unusual venues in Edinburgh.  Hidden Door Electric City will transform an incredible disused street lighting depot into a mecca of art, music, theatre, poetry and creativity. Hidden door is a nine day festival in the heart of Edinburgh, where an abandoned space is transformed and filled with art and music!

The Tinderbox Orchestra will unleash an explosive mix of orchestral music – in this five week course you will discover how Jazz, Electronic, Folk and Funk can all combine and be performed by an orchestra.  The course will feature brand new compositions and collaborations with bands and poets, as well as working with an exciting new project called Room to Play – an interactive and multidisciplinary music project bringing together musicians, artists & game developers!
