Random Acts of Music


Thursday 25 April 2024

Time

1.00PM – 2.00PM

Venue: North Quad

Combine a set of beautiful accessible instruments, a skilled rhythm and lead section and curious bystanders, and wait for the explosive, surprising, completely improvised experience that follows. The line between audience and performer is obliterated. Young and old, musically experienced and non, all come together to create the groove.

Each Random Act of Music is unique. People from all cultures can come together on these accessible, modal based instruments. When people learn to listen and play communally, magic happens. Through skilled facilitation, we may reveal the quirky 'free time' loop being played by a five-year-old child, with immense concentration, or experience a solo duel between two or more high flyers.

Note: In case of wet weather, the event will be in the Great Hall.

Fun for all ages!

 

This event is part of The Arts Centre's School Holiday Fun (13 - 28 April), a lively programme packed full with events to nurture creativity, spark imagination and entertain pre-schoolers through to teens.
