If you’re aged 10–15 and Grade 3+ standard on your orchestral instrument, come and join London Philharmonic Orchestra musicians at our free LPO Junior Artists: Overture Day on Tuesday 25 July at Ratton School in Eastbourne. This Overture day is delivered in partnership with Create Music, the music education hub for Brighton & Hove and East Sussex.
LPO Junior Artists: Overture days are free, fun orchestral skills days where participants play alongside LPO musicians as one big orchestra, get tips on musicianship in smaller group sessions, and find out what happens behind the scenes of a professional orchestra. In this Overture day we will explore music from Georges Bizet’s remarkable opera, which tells the story of a fiery, passionate and strong woman, Carmen.
The day will take place at Ratton School, Park Avenue, Eastbourne, BN21 2XR from 11.00am – 4.45pm.
At 4.15pm there will be a free performance showcasing the pieces we have explored, which will be open to friends and family.
Applications for this Overture day are now closed.

The highlight of the day was the performance in front of the audience. I also liked making friends with other participants, and the musicians were very friendly and helpful – I loved learning from them!
