First workshop i the NewAud "Ditching group #2"
“Ditching the concert hall” is the headline for no less than two of NewAud’s working communities.
For this the second community, the goal of the workshop is to get ideas and exchange experience on how to bring contemporary music to a new audience by breaking out of the traditional barriers of the concert hall.
The workshop takes place in London on Friday March the 15th, and includes six music ensembles. Though they come from six different countries they have one common goal: To engage a new audience by seeking out new venues – whether this means finding the right place for a particular piece of music, ambushing already existing performance venues, find a completely new regular space for one’s ensemble – or something else.
The NewAud ensembles are Orkiestra Muzyki Nowej (Poland), Psappha Ensemble (England), Gageego (Sweden), The Hebrides Ensemble (Scotland), Sinfonietta Riga (Latvia) and The Federation of Three Wallonia Ensembles (Belgium).
They meet to kick off their cooperation at this 8 hour workshop featuring guest speakers, case examples, research overview - and hours of good discussions.
