The project

The Open Sound Ensemble Course will be taking place on Thursday 24 and Friday 25 October 2019 at Plumcroft Primary School, Vincent Road Campus which is about a 5-minute walk away from Woolwich Arsenal station. Participants have the option of joining either the morning or afternoon group on each day.

Working as one group alongside specialist workshop leaders and musicians from the London Philharmonic Orchestra (LPO), we will create, rehearse and perform our own music. We will use a mixture of both traditional and accessible digital instruments to explore sounds, rhythms and melodies, and devise new music together.  We will be interacting with each other as an ensemble, sometimes following cues from the LPO team and each other, and sometimes making our own creative decisions.

****  The deadline for applications is Wednesday 2 October 2019.  ****

Plumcroft Primary School, 50 Vincent Road, SE18 6RG
Morning group: 10am–12noon  |  Afternoon group: 1.30–3.30pm




The autumn LPO Open Sound Ensemble course is kindly supported by Thomas Deane Trust. The LPO Open Sound Ensemble is also generously supported by The Viney Family.
