The Zigzag Ensemble is an exciting composing and improvising group for 12-16 year olds led by composer and workshop leader Ben Markland and BCMG musicians. Zigzag workshops happen eight times a year on the same day as Music Maze workshops.
Young people need to play a musical instrument to take part and read a little bit of music notation. BCMG welcomes young instrumentalists from all cultural traditions.
This workshop will take place at mac Birmingham, B12 9QH.
Participants receive a free ticket and a concessionary one for a parent/carer to come to the linked concert on Sunday 15 November at CBSO Centre.
Places are free but must be booked in advance.
This year we are offering young people the opportunity to do Arts Award Bronze through Zigzag Ensemble. BCMG staff are trained to help guide young people towards achieving their Arts Awards. Please note, attendance at BCMG workshops alone is not a guarantee of achieving the award. Click here for more information on Arts Award. For more information on BCMG’s offer, email email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org.
