Open Session: AYM Music Theatre & Bernstein
Friday 1 Jun 2018 4pm
Aldeburgh Young Musicians collaborate with conductor Catherine Larsen-Maguire, composer Charlotte Bray, cellist Elena Cheah and actress/philosopher Raphaëlle Oskar in exploring various aspects of musical theatre.
Throughout the residency, they will compose, improvise, analyse, experiment and perform. Using Bernstein’s West Side Story as a starting point, players, singers and composers will rehearse scenes from the musical and create their own original scenes while receiving ensemble coaching and conducting instruction. This Open Session will showcase both the source material and the new works which the AYMs have developed over the course of the week.
