A chance to hear the work of up and coming young composers – and to gain an insight into composing techniques, including writing for particular instruments.

A number of compositions by young people aged 18 and under will be performed and workshopped by professional players from the Phaedra Ensemble, with each composer receiving individual feedback and advice from the players and from composer Ewan Campbell. 

Two sessions will be held with a break between 1pm and 2pm. Audience members are welcome to drop in at any time.

The day will end with a celebratory performance of all the pieces at 5pm. 

Drop in when you like.
Free entry. Donations welcome.

“ My son was very moved to hear his piece being played by professional musicians. It’s an experience he will not forget. He learnt so much and is busy applying all the suggestions to his composition.” Participant in a previous composing workshop
