Have you ever wondered what it’s like to play in the BBC Symphony Orchestra? Find out at our next Come and Play day, where we’ll be inviting amateur musicians to BBC Maida Vale Studios to rehearse alongside members of the BBC SO, under the baton of professional conductor Michael Seal.
Whether you regularly play in an orchestra or group, or if you haven’t played in an ensemble for several years, this is a chance to come and play through fantastic symphonic works with some the UK’s top orchestral musicians by your side, and get top tips from our musicians and a leading conductor.
You can sign up for either the morning or afternoon session, and if there’s space you can join us for both! If you’re applying for both sessions, please state which is your preferred session, in case we are only able to offer you space in one. Make sure you select carefully from the drop down menu at the top of the sign up form.
10.30 – 13.30: Mussorgsky arr. Ravel Pictures at an Exhibition
14.30 – 17.30: Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 6
