Orchestra ONE

Orchestra ONE… the Orchestra of New Experiences…. is a FREE music group for young people to create and perform their own music, influenced by their own tastes, styles and instrumentation. It is your chance to experience playing in an orchestra like no other, with other young musicians from all backgrounds. Orchestra ONE has been directed by many of the UK’s finest musicians, including Tim Steiner, Matt Wright, Pete Wareham, James Redwood, Musiko Musika and Joe Browne. Each project is supported by specialist music tutors from Kent Music.

More event information

We ask participants at each project what themes they would like to explore in the future and ‘Space’ has been a very popular answer! So in November this will be our theme!

In recent years NASA recordings taken by the Voyager space craft have revealed that space make sounds which have been described as ‘Interstellar Plasma Music’. https://science.nasa.gov/science-news/science-at-nasa/2013/01nov_ismsounds. You can find lots of these NASA recordings on Youtube so have a listen and we will announce more details about the project very soon!
