Collaborate and push the boundaries of music-making with other young musicians, poets, rappers and beat makers with Band Director Paul Griffiths
Participants will create innovative multi-genre music in a collaborative setting. The group will work on two projects. The first will be in the autumn involving a number of evening and weekend rehearsals and leading to a performance at the EFG London Jazz Festival. Then a second project will take place in the spring term leading up to a performance in the Dialogue festival.
Work closely with Band Director Paul Griffiths, the internationally renowned music educationalist and special guest artists to explore an eclectic range of musical genres to create an ensemble of young musicians challenging contemporary form.
