Calderland – Music Workshop


Calderland: Free Drop-In Music Workshop
Square Chapel Arts Centre, Halifax
Thursday 8th June 6.30-8pm

Calling all Musicians!

Want to be part of the band that make a monumental sound in a monumental building? We’re recruiting musicians to be part of Calderland – the big singin’ brass blown’ foot stompin’ People’s Opera to be performed in the newly renovated Piece Hall at the end of September 2017 as part of its historic opening season.

And we’re inviting you to come along to one of our taster workshops to find out how you can be involved. We are running two open workshops with composer Richard Taylor at Square Chapel Arts Centre, Halifax on Thursday the 8th June 6.30-8pm and Sunday 11th June from 2.30-4pm.

Bring your instrument with you and work with Richard to create musical material for our Calderland. Musicians of all abilities are welcome. At the workshops you can also find out how you can join the Calderland band and be part of the show.

Richard Taylor was previously composer at residence at West Yorkshire Playhouse, and has won two UK Theatre Awards. He has worked in the West End, for the Royal Opera House and for the BBC. All our workshops are in accessible venues. If you have any specific access requirements please do get in touch with
