Creative Composing Lab is specially designed to allow young people the opportunity to compose music with and for professional musicians, guided by the expert knowledge of composer/workshop leader David Horne.
This workshop features a colourful trio of instruments Debussy made famous, the flute, viola and harp. Like the great composer, we will explore the unique combinations of sounds this group is capable of, creating works inspired by famous paintings.
The music created by the young people will be performed by the BCMG musicians in the foyer of Symphony Hall before BCMG’s concert on Sunday 25 March as part of the Debussy Festival.
If you love creating music or you need ideas for your GCSE, BTEC or A-level composition, Creative Composing Lab is for you.
Participants need some notation skills. Family and friends are welcome to the free performance of all music created at 5pm.
Places are free, but need to be booked in advance. A suggested donation of £12 per participant will ensure we can continue our workshop programme.
