Orchestras Live is a national music charity with the mission to inspire, motivate and empower the widest range of people through excellent live orchestral music. Our work enables thousands of people each year to experience the thrill of orchestral performance and to participate in creative, innovative projects, particularly in culturally under-served areas. We do this by operating as a producer and supporter of a diverse range of activity in partnership with a network of promoters, music education hubs, venues and numerous other stakeholders together with the leading British professional orchestras.
In Essex, Orchestras Live delivers a range of projects contributing to the priorities of Essex County Cultural Development, such as work with older people living with dementia, ‘relaxed’ concerts for people with additional needs and their carers, and interactive concerts for young children and families. In partnership with Essex Music Hub we achieve projects enabling young people to compose and perform with professional orchestras. Through other partnerships we co-produce the M&G Classical Concert Series at Chelmsford, and support orchestral concerts and learning projects at the Thaxted Festival.
