MusicUpClose IV: Music from Within: The psychology of musicians, composers and conductors
Presenters and guest musicians will include Karl Lutchmayer, Richard Sisson, Tom Hammond, Bill Brewer, Fenella Humphreys, Kathryn Harries, Sian Edwards, Simon Callaghan, Andrew Zolinsky, Matthew Taylor and featuring sound collective in the grand finale.
This series will provide illumination for anyone passionate about music, whether or not you have any previous knowledge! The interactive sessions will be presented in an accessible fashion, excluding unnecessary technical terms, and will allow the audience to ask questions and explore what goes on in the minds of players during rehearsals and performances. The locations will be intimate and audience and performers will be – as the title suggests – UpClose. In addition, each session will feature eminent musicians as our guest presenters.
