Nigerian Study Tour

The Commonwealth Resounds is delighted to be organising a unique study tour for 7 aspiring young Nigerian musicians who are developing their orchestral skills to help them lead and run ensembles in their own country. This project will be run in partnership with MUSON, one of Nigeria's most enterprising music conservatoires.

The Nigerian musicians will be taken to hear some of the UK’s top professional orchestras in rehearsal, and will meet professional musicians who will give them support and guidance. They will also have a chance to play side-by-side in some regional orchestras in Croydon, Hertfordshire and Manchester. They will visit the Purcell School and Chethams School of Music. The highlight of their tour will be to participate in high-profile events linked to Commonwealth Week 2017.

Everyone is looking forward to meeting the Nigerian musicians, and would like to give special thanks to our wonderful Patron Tunde Jegede, Artistic Director of Muson who is carefully preparing the musicians for this tour.
