Sharing Musical Skills: Antigua and Barbuda!

2024

Returning to Antigua for our third visit, our dedicated team of composers, musicians, educators, joined with the prodigious talents of the young musicians of Antigua & Barbuda, St Kitts & Nevis and Montserrat to develop young composers and shine a light on the musical tapestry of the islands.

Through days of workshops, rehearsals, and awe-inspiring concerts, we aim to learn about the potential of the island’s young musicians, nurture their compositional abilities, and together we will celebrate, the richness of Antiguan and Barbudan cultures.

Day 1

The team began their adventure, meeting for the first time, our amazing group of students and graduates from conservatoires and top universities gathered at Gatwick airport. After receiving a warm welcome to Antigua, they shook off their travel fatigue with a refreshing swim in the Caribbean Sea. The day ended perfectly with a pizza dinner, new friendships have been built and a positive tone set for the journey ahead.

Day 2

A day to relax, recover and prepare for the week ahead. The team will get to know each other and get ready for the week ahead. For most of the team it is their first visit to the islands and this will be an opportunity to get used to the heat, and time difference!  

Our first set of photos from day 2 can be viewed here.
