DMU Students: join Hear and Now with the Philharmonia Orchestra

The Philharmonia Orchestra and DMU Music proudly present the second session of our collaborative project Hear and Now. We are currently looking for DMU students with a genuine interest in making live music, meeting new people and who can make a commitment to this project to join us from the 25th until the 28th of February 2018.

This intergenerational community creative project, led by Artistic Director Tim Steiner brings together different generations of the local community through music. Working together with the Alzheimer Society's Singing for the Brain, local school children and professional musicians from the Philharmonia, you will be creating and performing completely new music in four days of workshops.
