Tinderbox Orchestra Sessions

Open Rehearsals at the Jazz Bar, Every Sunday from Feb 7th to April 7th 2019.
Suggested donation £5, but whatever you can afford is fine.

The idea is a bit like an orchestral jam session.  There will be a core orchestra each week who will be rehearsing and developing an excited set of original orchestral music across different styles.  People can come and watch the sessions, and if you play an instrument or if you sing or rap, we’d love you to come and join in and play with the orchestra too.

If you would like to play, you can join for the full course, or come week-to-week and join in at your own pace. The project has a focus on young musicians aged 14-25, though any age is welcome. There will be a mix of easy and hard pieces, and some ‘flexible scores’ so people of different levels of experience can all get involved.  There will also be a singing group if you don’t play an instrument and want to join in there!
