The aim of The Notations Project is to inspire young school students to connect with contemporary classical music through composition and performance workshop, to extend their musical knowledge and experience.

Workshops will have the following order:

  • Artistic director Alexander Soares will give a short performance of Boulez’s Notations and talk about the miniature compositions.
  • Students will then have the opportunity to write a short composition (12 bars long, or 30 seconds)
  • Compositions workshopped at the piano
  • The event ends with an open performance of the compositions
