Constuctor Music Premier Performance at Dartington Great Hall

For the past year Lifeworks young people have been working with Moor to Sea Music Leaders to create new and accessible ways to make music. They’ve invented new ways to construct music and conduct musicians. They’ve met harp, sitar and saxophone players, they’ve conducted a west-end band live on Zoom and Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra musicians live at Dartington. They’ve built the music for this performance. Come and see the young constructors live at Dartington – FREE for lifeworks families.

Constructor premier performance in the stunning Great Hall at Dartington – lunchtime 12 noon – 12.30pm monday 25 july

Constructor half day rehearsals take place at space studios, dartington 1-4pm sunday 24 july and 9.30-11.30am monday 25 july for our young musical constructors.
