Cumbria Music Service as the lead organisation for the Cumbria Music Education Hub is delighted to be working with Orchestras Live, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and The Sands Centre to give young people an opportunity to experience the thrill of a live orchestral concert.

Uniquely the concert will be devised, produced and presented by a team of young people from Trinity School Carlisle, including some with additional needs. They will be supported by internationally renowned music leader, Tim Steiner, musicians from the RPO, staff at The Sands Centre and our own staff on every aspect of presenting a concert like no other where preconceptions about classical music and orchestras will be challenged at every opportunity.

The concerts are designed to be inclusive for young people with additional needs as well as those in mainstream education and will be particularly suitable for Years 5- 8.

The amazing skills of the Royal Philharmonic players will be on show in music chosen specifically to engage and introduce young people to the amazing sound world of orchestral music as they perform everything from classical to film, TV and game music.
