Grand Union Orchestra – Summer School, August 2018
Monday 30th July – Thursday 2nd August 2018
The fifth Grand Union annual residential Summer School will take place in the wonderfully spacious Writtle University College and its idyllic surroundings, near Chelmsford in Essex. It will run for four days, beginning lunchtime Monday, July 30th, and concluding on Thursday afternoon August 2nd with a concert of the work created during the course.
The course will be led by musicians from the Grand Union Orchestra, many of them also featured in that article. They represent all the world’s major musical traditions, into which they were born and bred; internationally-fêted performers in their own right, they are also great communicators and charismatic workshop leaders.
The course is open to young musicians aged 12 to 21 who wish to learn more about world music techniques first-hand from experts and develop their creative and improvisational skills. Players of non-European instruments are especially welcome, and we also encourage multi-instrumentalists.
