Welcome to the Tinderbox Project, a dynamic hub for youth music and arts in Edinburgh.

Tinderbox is approaching its 5th anniversary and we’ve got a couple of great projects underway to celebrate!

We have just launched our Kickstarter for our debut album! We need to raise £5,000 by December 1st. 

The album will involve over 100 young musicians from across Edinburgh and some of the best emerging young composers, bands and artists that we have worked with.

This album will be a unique project and the goal is to produce an orchestral record like nothing else – one that will spark people’s imagination and take them on an unexpected journey of new compositions and orchestral collaborations.

Head to our Kickstarter here to support our work and get your hands on some exciting new Tinderbox merchandise!

The Tinderbox Orchestra will celebrate its 5 year anniversary with a huge orchestral concert and one-day festival showcasing all of the wonderful music, art and people that have been part of its journey so far.  Featuring Frontiers, Journey of a Thousand Wings, Spontaneous Orchestra, Creative Sessions and some of the best band collaborations and orchestral experiments in this time, it will be a fantastic concert and we’d love you to come and celebrate with us.
