Schoolchildren across the West Midlands will be able to get hands-on experience of playing a brass instrument thanks to our new partnership with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra.
We are delighted to be providing 100 of the world’s best-selling trombones, pBones, and the world’s first all-plastic trumpets, pTrumpets, for use by the CBSO’s Learning & Engagement department.
The CBSO’s Fanfare project will enable world-class CBSO musicians to introduce pBones, pTrumpets and other Brass instruments to young people in local schools.
Our new brightly-coloured instruments will also make appearances at the CBSO’s Family and Notelets performances, allowing for hands on experiences for as many young people as possible.
As a world-class orchestra with world-class musicians, there is no organisation better placed than the CBSO to showcase these innovative instruments and give children their first experience of the enormously fun in playing brass.
