Two days of events for players and singers of all abilities. All are welcome.

Friday 2 March – VOCAL MUSIC

During the day, there will be all-comers workshop sessions on CoMA’s part-songs and other repertoire for amateur and mixed-ability choirs, a “Make a Piece” session on collaborative composition, and a workshop-performance of graphic scores.

In the evening, Cardiff University’s Contemporary Music Group presents “Welsh Voices” a concert of contemporary Welsh choral repertoire, including pieces prepared by participants during the day’s workshops.

Saturday 3 March – INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC

The celebrated Fidelio Trio will lead workshops on instrumental music for all comers during the day, and Ty Cerdd hosts a panel of composers and performers discussing issues around contemporary music, collaboration and community.

This is followed by an evening concert by the Fidelio Trio of contemporary chamber music, also with contributions from the day’s participants.

Come for both days, or for one.
