The UP! Orchestra – The Americas theme

  • 9th December 2017 - 9th December 2017
  • 10am - 1pm
  • The Bridge Youth Centre, Surrey

The UP! Orchestra, Surrey’s exciting orchestra for young aspiring musicians including those with SEND and from challenging backgrounds, is back for a new term. UP! is Surrey’s most inclusive orchestra with young musicians from a range of backgrounds performing together.

This term they will be celebrating diversity in Surrey and beyond through food and music. During each session they will explore music from a particular continent and invite parents, carers and staff to bring food that links to that continent to share during the session. For example, for Europe you might bring Scottish shortbread or tapas and for Asia and the Middle East samosas or hummus. The sharing of food will be a lovely way for everyone to connect beyond language and provides an energetic springboard to start the music activities!

These sessions are suitable for young people, aged 12 – 19 years (learning disabled 25, in care up to 21) of different musical abilities from complete beginners to experienced musicians of different backgrounds and musical interests.

Session timings:
10am      – Music Session 1 for children and young people with special educational needs who would benefit from additional support
11am      – All members arrive for welcome and food sharing
11.30am – Music session 2 for all members
1pm       – End
