County Groups Creatives will give County Groups members, as well as other young people aged 14-21 with an interest in composing/ performing / music production, the opportunity to work with Chineke! Orchestra tutors and a facilitator, to work together to produce and perform their own composition.

County Groups members will be offered the additional opportunity to form chamber ensembles (one or more depending on numbers). The Chamber Ensemble will be of mixed instrumentation (determined by those taking part), not necessarily traditional i.e. string quartet, brass ensemble etc. 

Additional young people, aged 14-21, interested in composing or performing will also have the opportunity to participate and help shape/perform the composition. We welcome all instruments/voice including music production / DJing / Beatboxers aged 14+.  

We envisage the involvement of around 15 to 20 young people.

Plan of the sessions:

Three 90 minute 'virtual' sessions – December, January and February. Ideally this will be at the weekend where students create themes, chord structures, rhythmic ideas or more. Facilitator, identified by Chineke! Orchestra, uses material to create final short composition.

'Live' day rehearsal in Lincoln (March) with opportunity to rehearse and video record a final performance.

Students may be able to use this as part of their GCSE/ BTEC/A level ensemble performance and possibly for the composition element, depending on the course and exam board.
