Open Session: AYM - The Baton & the Pen
Wednesday 16 Aug 2017 9:32pm
Through masterclasses and in-depth discussions, Aldeburgh Young Musicians will explore the fundamental techniques associated with conducting and composition. All the musicians will conduct an ensemble of their peers in order to understand the practical, artistic, and leadership responsibilities of a conductor. New compositions will be workshopped and performed.
Throughout the week together, John Woolrich and Scott Wilson will lead discussions sharing their experiences composing and performing contemporary music, particularly shedding light on their passion for contemporary music within the United Kingdom and Australia. The week will culminate with a final Open Session which will include music by John Woolrich, Percy Grainger, and numerous other British and Australian composers.
