Free Music Workshops for 11 – 18 year olds

 

World famous percussionist and Banbridge native, Mr Mark Wilson, will be delivering music workshops to young people using a wealth of different instruments from across the world. The workshops, aimed at young people aged 11-18, will take place across Banbridge District from the 16th October, culminating in a performance by ‘Bernagh’ on Saturday 24th November in the Old town Hall, Banbridge where our young musicians will be able to show their talent.

The workshops will be availble in 2 sessions, one for those aged 11-14 and the other for those aged 15-18.  The series will see participants engaged in 2 workshops each, all leading to the opportunity to take part part in the big performance on Saturday.
