Workshop with composer and band-leader Peter Wiegold

Club Inégales – Wednesday, 21 November 2018 from 6.30pm-8:30pm

Peter is the director of Club Inégales where he has led over 100 gigs in 7 years with musicians from around world cultures. In February he will launch a new ’world’ orchestra at the Barbican Centre, The Third Orchestra with 25 musicians from across classical, jazz, folk, Asian, Middle-Eastern, South and North American, electronic and experimental musics.

Here he will lead a practical session showing his techniques for composing, live devising and semi-improvised performance. Either bring your instrument or your voice.

When rsvp’ing please do say which instrument you will bring.

Unfortunately we cannot supply PA or back-line – you will need to bring your own.
