Students given opportunity to work with world-renowned musiciansFriday 20 May 2016
A series of specialist workshops gave Music students a unique opportunity to work with renowned musicians.
An all-day event subsidised by Liverpool Hope University Teaching and Equipment Funds and Arts & Humanities Faculty Teaching Funds, saw students work with the world-famous ensemble The Sixteen.
The SATB Composition Workshop for four unaccompanied voices featured 22-scores from Level I, Level H, Masters and Postgraduate composers.
Senior Lecturer in Music Dr Ian Percy said: “This is the fifth year this collaborative project has taken place, and it is another example of the unique opportunities consistently made available to the Liverpool Hope Music Student.”
Elsewhere, Level H and Masters Music students took part in a Composition Workshop with a small chamber ensemble from the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra (RLPO).
The workshop featured 10 student scores composed for a mixed sextet of flute (doubling piccolo), clarinet, horn, violin, cello and piano.
It was the latest in a series of collaborative workshops between the Music Department Composers and the RLPO.
The chamber ensemble is the subject of a Postgraduate Composition Workshop and 15 scores from the student composers will be performed in a public recital at the Capstone Theatre on Monday 6th June.
