A Symphony of Cultures: Our Return to Antigua

The Commonwealth Resounds: Returning to Antigua & Barbuda

Join us as we embark on another inspiring chapter of musical exploration and collaboration with the talented youth of Antigua & Barbuda.

Anticipating Our Return

A New Chapter in Antigua & Barbuda

We are thrilled to announce our return to the beautiful shores of Antigua & Barbuda this summer! Our previous journey was filled with unforgettable moments, from teaching recorder in Barbuda to witnessing the incredible dedication of young musicians. This year, we aim to build on the foundations laid last year with advanced composition workshops, rehearsals, and performances of new pieces. Our collaborative projects will involve both returning students and new faces, ensuring a diverse and enriching experience for all participants. Antigua and Barbuda will be welcoming students from Montserrat and St Kitts & Nevis to join 20 young Antiguan students in this unique project, the first ever to happen in the Caribbean. Stay tuned for more updates as we approach our departure date.

Counting down to our next visit...








Memories from Our Last Visit

Antigua & Barbuda Youth Symphony Orchestra

Unforgettable Moments

A Journey of Musical Inspiration

Our previous visit to Antigua was nothing short of magical. We had the privilege of teaching recorder to eager students in Barbuda, witnessing their rapid progress and unbridled enthusiasm. The dedication and passion of these young musicians was truly inspiring, leaving a lasting impression on our team.

One of the highlights was the first ever Symphony Orchestra concert on Barbuda, where the energy and excitement was palpable. The enchanting rehearsals at iconic venues like the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium added to the unforgettable experience, creating memories that will stay with us forever.

Upcoming Plans

Building on Success

The warm reception from the local community in Antigua was heartwarming and encouraging. The evident musical potential on the islands was a testament to the talent and dedication of the young musicians we had the pleasure of working with. Their enthusiasm and commitment to learning and growing musically was truly remarkable.

This summer, we have an exciting lineup of activities planned. Our team of dedicated composers and musicians will be conducting advanced workshops, diving deeper into the intricacies of musical creation. Composition will be a key focus, as we work closely with young musicians from Antigua & Barbuda, Montserrat and St Kitts & Nevis to refine their skills and prepare for a stunning performance of new music by young people at the end of the week.
