What happens when young musicians work with world-class artists?
Friday, July 10, 2015
This year, Call to Create are celebrating young creativity in a season of multi-discipline performances and moments co-created by young people and established artists from around the world.
One of these performances is Where Music Meets produced by National Orchestra for All (NOFA). At the heart of this project is collaboration between exceptional musicians and creative young people. Artistic Director and Founder Marianna Hay explores the question, what happens if young musicians are allowed to share a creative process with world-class artists?
When planning a collective creative music project led by young people and powered through collaborations with East London Arts And Music (ELAM), the Junior Department of the Royal Academy of Music, Kuumba Youth Music and the National Youth Jazz Collective, we had to ask ourselves some BIG questions and take creative risks.
