music maze for children
30 September 2017 | 10.30 am – 02.00 pm
Southbank Centre | Blue Room
Calling all children ages 8 – 11, bring an instrument (if you have one), and join this three-hour workshop session to make your own piece of contemporary music, then perform what you’ve created on our cafe stage as part of Nordic Music Days.
Music Maze is a set of composing resources, each taking a different piece of contemporary classical music repertoire as their starting point. This session, led by Nancy Evans, Director of Learning & Participation for Birmingham Contemporary Music Group (BCMG), takes children through the processes composers use to help support the group to create their own music.
All abilities are welcome. If you have an instrument, please bring it with you, but it is not a requirement for participating in the workshop.
This workshop ends with a free public concert, held on the stage at Riverside Terrace Cafe.
