Performing music with others provides a unique opportunity to be part of a diverse musical community of orchestras, bands and groups. Being a member of a city ensemble helps young musicians to build their confidence and develop social skills. Learning and making music alongside others encourages progress and supports greater musicianship. Performing in concerts and tours, young musicians proudly represent their city — locally, nationally and across the world — making a positive contribution to their communities.
