The academic rigour provided by the Trust is combined with the musical prowess of the CBSO. The orchestra presents over 150 concerts every year around the world and regularly collaborates with internationally renowned musicians, many of whom will visit the Academy to perform and conduct masterclasses with our pupils. Additionally, pupils are learn about and experience the organisation which surrounds the orchestra. From education and enrichment to sound and engineering; from orchestration and conducting to logistics and travel, this unique partnership provides pupils with exceptional opportunities to gain real industry experience.
