Britten Sinfonia Academy (BSA) is Britten Sinfonia’s chamber ensemble for talented young musicians from the across the east of England. Participants receive expert mentoring from Britten Sinfonia musicians across four exciting projects throughout the academic year. The academy offers the opportunity to delve into new styles of playing taught by specialist musicians as well as working with key feature artists from Britten Sinfonia’s main season.
The projects are usually held on weekends in the academic year and focus on a range of chamber ensemble skills. Each project helps musicians to develop their musical leadership, increase their confidence and gives each musician the chance to contribute the group’s artistic decisions.
Working alongside BSA, our Composer Hub invites young composers to join each project, and receive mentoring from established composers. Members of the Composers Hub have the opportunity to write, rehearse, record and perform their music with the ensemble.
