These ensembles are highly valued by the Children, Young People and Families Service. Many elected members of the Council and senior officers attend concerts each year.
William Salamon undertook a thorough review of the Music Ensembles, commissioned by Birmingham Music Service. This is what he said:
Birmingham Music Ensembles exist in order to:
- give pupils the opportunity to perform in groups of a size and standard beyond that possible in individual schools
- provide a clear progression for developing musicians offering a range of appropriate musical experience.
