Dive into making music with us this half term!

Are you a creative musician aged 11-18, who play any instrument or sings in any genre? Join Orchestra ONE (O1) this half term for the watery adventure of a lifetime.

Explore the depths of your potential as the creator of your own musical journey this October half term.

In just four days, you, with an orchestra of creative young musicians and our supportive tutors, will create a completely new suite of music inspired by the mystery and music of worlds beneath the waves.

O1 is all about supporting you to be creative, explore and expand your skills in a fun and low-pressure environment. It’s the perfect opportunity for you to practice learning by ear, ensemble playing, and of course creating new music!

Your final pieces will be performed on the final evening of the course alongside a music and dance project on the same theme at the Jasmin Vardimon Company’s headquarters as part of Ashford’s Create Music Village Fringe.

Make waves this half term – sign up today!

We welcome all musicians aged 11-18 who play any instrument or sing in any genre to join the ensemble.

We ask that beginners have been playing their instrument for at least one school term, but there is no restriction on instruments or preferred genres.

If you’re a vocalist, no prior experience is required!

It doesn’t matter whether you’re a classical harpist, a ska trumpeter, a spoken word poet, beatboxer, DJ, folk guitarist or something else entirely – you’re all welcome to add your special touch to the ensemble.

Every O1 project offers brand new experiences, and you don’t need to have taken part before to have a great experience.

Wherever possible, participants will need to bring their own instruments along to the project, including amplifiers, leads and instrument stands. Music stands will be provided for all.

Do let us know if you haven’t got your own supplies – we may be able to help out. Please get in touch by emailing countygroups@kent-music.com if this is the case.

All participants will work closely with our specialist music tutors throughout the course. For this project, instead of having one musical director all our experienced tutors will work together and with participants to steer the project!

Alex Ribchester – Percussion

Pip Bowers – Guitars and Vocals

Simon Clarke – Wind

Nick Powling – Keyboard and Music Tech
