Tinderbox Orchestra Spring Course

Tinderbox are running two orchestra courses from March – June 2017: an Intermediate Course (age 11 – 18) & an Advanced Course (13 – 25).  Both will build up to a big concert at Hidden Door festival on 4th June, where Tinderbox will be launching it’s debut album!

Our orchestras all have a focus on writing and performing new music, playing modern styles, collaborating with interesting bands and artists, and trying to do something new & exciting with an orchestra.

Tutors come from all backgrounds, from internationally renowned orchestral players, jazz musicians, song-writers, composers, electronic musicians and session players.  The orchestras bring everyone together – all ages, instruments, experiences and ideas – with goal of making some amazing music, meeting lots of great people and putting on spectacular concerts together.

For this course, we will be working on music from Tinderbox’s upcoming album, as well as several new pieces and collaborations, and composing a piece together as a group.  The courses will involve a mix of reading music, improvising, composing and performing, and we’ll work together to put on an unforgettable show for the Tinderbox album launch at Hidden Door festival in June.
