The sixth Grand Union annual residential Summer School will take place in the wonderfully spacious Writtle University College and its idyllic surroundings, near Chelmsford in Essex. It will run for four days, beginning at lunchtime on Monday, 29 July and concluding on the afternoon of Thursday, 1 August, with a concert of the work created during the course.

The course will be led by musicians from the Grand Union Orchestra. They represent all the world’s major musical traditions, into which they were born and bred; internationally-fêted performers in their own right, they are also great communicators and charismatic workshop leaders.

The course is open to young musicians aged 12 to 21 who wish to learn more about world music techniques first-hand from experts, and develop their creative and improvisational skills. Players of non-European instruments are especially welcome, and we also encourage multi-instrumentalists.

What’s in it for me?

  • Work alongside leading professional musicians
  • Learn about world music, first hand, from experts
  • Discover new instruments and develop improvisation skills
  • Meet and create with like-minded young musicians and make new friends
  • Take part in a public concert featuring music created in the workshops

Who’s it for?

Young musicians of secondary school age and up (12-21) interested in learning about music from other parts of the world, and/or who play a non-European instrument.
