Zigzag Ensemble is an exciting creative ensemble for those who play a musical instrument and read a little bit of music notation, led by composer/bassist Ben Markland alongside BCMG musicians. In the workshops participants create pieces from scratch inspired by music featured in upcoming BCMG concerts. Zigzag workshops happen eight times a year on the same day as Music Maze workshops.
BCMG welcomes young instrumentalists from all cultural traditions.
Participants receive a free ticket and a concessionary one for a parent/carer to come to the linked concert.
Places are free but must be booked in advance using the Ticket Info tab. Booking is now closed
