Sound Inventors Free Concert at The Sage Gateshead

The Sound Inventors project draws to a close on 17th September with a short concert of chamber music featuring the 12 world premieres written by the young musicians involved.

Matthew Pollard conductor

Sound Inventors is an award-winning programme of composition projects for young people aged between 12 and 18. Each project is led by established composers and musicians, who work closely with the young people to enable them to create and notate music in a variety of styles for recording and performance by professional musicians.

"Sound Inventors is giving young people a chance to be real composers - to be creative, get their ideas down and then to hear real musicians play them while they sit back and listen to the results." Alasdair Nicolson, Sound Inventors Creative Director

Come and support these talented young composers as they hear their pieces played by the professional musicians, who have worked with them during the project. There will also be performances of pieces by the professional composers working on the Tyneside project.

Compositions by: Laura Barrett, Rachael Chesney, Colleen O Brien, Kevin Wu, Tong Zhao, Jake Houlsby, Andrew Sidwell, Faith Germany and Tommy Burn.

Also by: Matthew Pollard, Chris Randall and Tara Creme.

Tickets for the concert are free and are available from the Sage Gateshead Box Office
