This new piece is for solo ukulele (played by the composer) and three groups of supporting ukulele players:
1. Intermediate (to fairly tricky)
3. Novice to Intermediate (basic chords with specific rhythms)
The players in each group will need to prepare individually in the months leading up to the festival using Richard’s online resources (available from February 2019 on richarddurrantacademy.com). These include a downloadable PDF of each part and clearly made instructional films which encourage each player to memorise their parts and, ultimately, to play along to the complete piece.
At MUMF Richard will work with the groups of players in three workshops and one full rehearsal - all scheduled to take place on the day of the concert (June 1st 2019).
