Aldeburgh Young Musicians working with composer Charlotte Bray in ‘Contemporary Music’ course.

This weekend sees the arrival of a number of Aldeburgh Young Musicians (AYM) who will be working with internationally renowned composer, Charlotte Bray. During their week together, the AYM composers will be challenged to write a new piece where they have total freedom to experiment with ideas in an intense environment, developing their awareness of the capabilities of the instruments and ensemble, stretching the performers to their limits.

Charlotte will also be working with Dave Maric, Simon Wallfisch and Harry Penny in running the course over the next week, and on Sunday 1 June, the course will culminate in an Open Session here at Snape Maltings (click on the link for tickets)
