No, this isn’t the latest shortcut for texting your pals… This is a short blurb about what one of our illustrious resident ensembles are up to at the moment… and they are always up to something…
Happening now at CoLab: 13th-24th February:
Piano Circus are running some collaborative workshops with composers and players at Trinity Laban this week, with composer Duncan MacLeod, as part of Trinity’s very interesting CoLab programme. Empowering you to take artistic risks, CoLab is an exceptional learning opportunity which will enable you to learn and think differently as a musician. In facilitating your engagement with a wide range of artists and art-forms from across the worlds of music, dance and beyond, CoLab offers an unparalleled insight into the creative process. You will be able help determine the projects undertaken, with many senior students invited to take leading roles in many of the projects on offer.
Happening later: 9th and 21st March
