Junior Improvising Orchestra – Student Platform Concert – 27th January 2018, 1.40pm
 
The Junior Improvising Orchestra continues to develop its musical skills and is presenting a programme that links to musical ideas found in the music of Claude Debussy. He was a keen improviser and there are references to him improvising for hours when friends came to his apartment. It will be a 100 years since the composer’s death on 23rd March and it will be prescient to make a connection with his improvisatory approach to music-making. Many of the pieces in the programme use elements of Debussy’s music with the added creative energies of the ensemble’s player/composers.
 
The musicians have been developing skills that focus on listening, responding and creating music based on unusual scales and harmonies, as well as having fun with different approaches to composition.
