Networking, Technology and Orchestra
Always wanted to be in an orchestra? You don’t need to be a violin virtuoso, or even read music – use networked technology to take part in a contemporary orchestral workshop and performance – with no musical experience necessary.
Members of the public are invited to take part in or observe rehearsals and performances of a new work by Composer Ed Hughes. Up to ten members of the public can take part in each performance, joining the players of Sussex contemporary music ensemble, COMA. Visual instructions will be given via a set of networked iPads.
If you would like to take part in one of the rehearsals and performances, please register below. Places are limited, so we will email you the week before to check you are still coming.
You must be available for the whole session. No musical experience necessary, but enthusiasm essential. You will be given a percussion instrument and take part in a 60min rehearsal followed by 20min performance. Family and friends welcome to watch the rehearsal and performance. Repertoire to include Grieg, Holst and Hughes.
FREE. All ages, under 16’s must be accompanied by an adult
