MusXchange Bootcamp for Musicians, March 20 - 23, 2019, Glasgow
The first bootcamp under the fourth MusXchange cycle 2018-20 was taking place from March 20th – 23rd in Glasgow, Scotland. The bootcamp did gather 15 musicians from 12 MusX partner orchestras for a genuine European bootcamp with training sessions on audience development and outreach skills. Musicians formed various chamber music ensembles, rehearsed together and performed for different audiences including moderation and engaging with audiences.
The host of the meeting was our Scottish member orchestra, the National Youth Orchestras of Scotland, and its chief executive Nicolas Zekulin. The workshops for musicians were held in cooperation with Live Music Now, Scotland, its director Carol Main (“Inspiring musicians – Transforming lives”), and a number of experienced trainers and LMN musicians.
