GET INVOLVED WITH BSO!

Message for all budding musicians from the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra (BSO)

Dear All,

We are pleased to say that BSO Young Explorers: Sea, Voyages & Hope first video is now live! Please go to our webpage to watch: https://bsolive.com/participate/sea-voyages-hope/. I thought it might be useful to share the timetable of when things will be going live and how long activities are likely to take so you can plan it in to your lessons. The videos and resources will also remain on our website, so you can access them whenever is convenient, but it would be great to have everyone along with the performance at the end on Friday 26 June! Any questions, don’t hesitate to ask.

We would love to see pictures of you participating by tagging us #BSOYoungExplorers at @BSOrchestra or by emailing me at schools@bsorchestra.co.uk!
All the best,

Jess Craig,
BSO Participate Programme Manager
