After last year’s sucess (with more than 200 students at Ince’s Hall) BrightMed returns to stage another celebration of music in a dazzling series of workshops. Orphy Robinson MBE has developed these particular strategies for the Workshops and will be leading them with the assistance of Lester Batchelor, Dee Byrne and Mohammed Nazam. The course has more of an emphasis on playing and performance and they will create two pieces that will be performed during the BrightMed Talks at Ince’s Hall on the 12th June. This gives the students the opportunity of having a lesson that is more focused on their individual needs.
