The Family Orchestra and Chorus is an ensemble for all ages, all instruments, and all levels of ability. It's a chance for families to make music together, joining members of the BBC Concert Orchestra in a fun family-friendly workshop to compose new music from scratch together.

All abilities are welcome. Whether you're a virtuoso violinist, budding trumpet player, or if you're completely new to music, you can come along and sing in the chorus or join the percussion section. You don't need to be able to read music.

It's free to take part, and open to anyone over the age of 7. All participants under the age of 16 will need to be accompanied throughout by a parent or guardian aged 18 or above.

Over the course of two weekends, you and your family will have the chance to work with BBC Concert Orchestra musicians to create a brand new piece of music. There’s also the chance for the Family Orchestra & Chorus to meet again in April without members of the BBC CO to perform at Truro Cathedral. To take part in this project you will need to commit to the following dates:
