Serious has a reputation for creating ambitious, artist-led family shows and large-scale mass participation projects. 

Projects such as Saxophone Massive and Choir Clock provide opportunities for people of all ages and abilities to take part in music projects led by inspirational musicians. Through this work we want to promote social cohesion, continue to inspire individuals and connect communities.

Serious is passionate about creating quality music experiences for children and their families. Through our family work we aim to provide affordable, inspiring and entertaining concerts and workshops, which foster a love of live music in young audiences. Find out more about our participation work on the pages below, or by getting in touch via

'I would definitely recommend a project like this because it gets you back involved in music whether you’ve been away from it for a long time or whether you’ve kept up playing for a while – It’s just the same level for everyone. Chris is really encouraging to get the best out of everyone.’
