Asana String Quartet

This event, now in its 7th year, is the thrilling culmination of a joint music composition project when young composers from local schools hear their compositions performed by professional musicians.

Year 9/10 pupils from Churchill Academy, Merchants' Academy, Bristol, and Worle School work together over a number of weeks with the Asana Quartet, a professional string quartet (all of whom are members of the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra) and a composer, Jeff Spencer, to create their own works on a dance theme. What makes this event so special is the way in which the Asana Quartet and Jeff Spencer not only coach, support and develop the pupils to create their own highly individual compositions but also make those works come alive when the Quartet performs them at the Showcase evening.

Apart from the tangible development of their composition skills and the confidence that grows as a result, the pupils benefit hugely from the creative stimulus provided by working with, and being coached by, professional musicians and a resident composer. They also have the ultimate thrill of hearing their compositions professionally performed in front of an audience.

Come along and be part of this magical, life enhancing, event - hear the unique compositions and give these young people, and the professionals who have given up their time to develop them, the support they so justly deserve.
