Barbican Box Music Showcase

with the Max Richter Quintet

Barbican box showcasee

School groups from across east London present music grounded in their community and their personal histories, having worked with Max Richter’s Barbican Box over the last two terms.

The Barbican Box is, literally, a portable box that contains different sounds and objects to encourage an imaginative approach to making music. Curated this year by Max Richter, who has worked directly with mentors and the young musicians themselves, students from east London used the Box to explore the idea of ‘reflections on yourself’. Here they perform the pieces they’ve shaped throughout the project, and are joined by the Max Richter Quintet, who will also perform.
