Big Play KS2

We're all in this Together!

March 2023 sees the return of our Big Play events across Cumbria, offering schools the opportunity to perform with other schools and to showcase their whole class and instrumental group work.

We are inviting schools to take part in a half day workshop for First Access, whole class instrumental classes and school orchestras or large ensembles. Each school will perform their own pieces, listen to others perform and create music together in a mass ensemble.

  • a safe environment for schools to play instruments together

  • perform to a wider audience

  • experience being part of a large-scale performance

  • hear professional musicians playing their instruments .
