Composer Frédéric Pattar and acclaimed French ensemble L’instant donné will be visiting Birmingham this February to work with Birmingham Contemporary Music Group’s early career NEXT musicians for some exciting workshops.

These workshops will culminate in a special performance by our talented NEXT musicians and members of L’instant donné of the unnervingly beautiful works of Frédéric Pattar.
