Orchestral Jamboree



The Jamboree is a free one-day workshop aimed at young instrumental learners up to and including Grade 1, providing them with an opportunity to enjoy making music with other young players under expert specialist guidance.

The one-day workshop includes

  • Playing in sections – woodwind, brass, orchestral strings and orchestral percussion
  • Organised games and activities
  • Playing together as a large group
  • A public concert performance for family and friends in one of the County’s most prestigious venues, the Bedford Corn Exchange

The Jamboree workshop is put on through a collaboration between Bedfordshire Music Trust and our partners, the four local Music Hubs:

Inspiring Music (Central Bedfordshire)
