Where appropriate we like to turn up early and invite local musicians and singers to join in the show. The idea is the venue looks for willing participants and puts them in touch with us; we send out the music and tunes to listen to; they turn up on the day and join in the orchestra.
In the case of a festival the idea’s the same, we put the info and an email address to contact in the program, and hold open rehearsals on site during the festival encouraging passing musicians and singers to join in.
We’ve run youth orchestra workshops in Bristol in 2017
We did a day of Ursula K LeGuin events at cafe Kino in Aug 2016
