Join us for a fantastic performance by pupils from six Kirklees primary schools who have participated in our Music for Young Players project, a partnership with Sound and Music and the British Music Collection at The University of Huddersfield’s archives, Heritage Quay. Local composers Julian Brooks, Eleanor Cully and Tom Lawrence have run composition workshops in schools over a six week period, taking inspiration and starting points from a set of scores from the 1960s and 1970s called Music for Young Players. Come and hear some of the scores performed, alongside new companion pieces composed by the pupils themselves during the workshops. The performance will also feature one of the original scores performed by all the school groups together, directed by composer Duncan Chapman.
