Following a successful inaugural seminar in 2015 and a gigantic 2016 seminar, Richard Gill, Karen Carey and Andrew Batt-Rawden team up again to deliver another astounding compositional development experience for high school Music 1 and Music 2 students in years 8, 9, 10 and 11 with a choice of either Monday 24 July 2017, or Tuesday 25 July 2017. The workshop will run from 9am to 2:30pm. 

The day has three core components:

  • workshop/analysis of students' works
  • analysis of two Australian works and one repertoire piece;
    • Igor Stravinsky; The Soldier’s Tale  (Trio version – 1920)
    • Richard Grantham; The Lyrebird in my Piano  (2014)
    • Lisa Cheney; No Distant Place  (2015)
  • a performance and discussion other repertoire commissioned by Plexus, by both international and local composers. 

A kit will be distributed on the day that includes; all student scores being played through, an educational guide to Stefan Cassomenos' work, scores of other works being performed and a guide to approaching their analysis.
