Brass Bands England's Artistic Development workshops are lead by Philip Harper, conductor of the world-famous Cory Band. The day appeals to anyone involved in banding, in particular those who have an input into artistic direction. Throughout the day, attendees will learn about concert planning, engaging the audience and the practicalities involved in rehearsing a band, as well as how to maximise your artistic reach and capitalise on marketing through social media. And who better to lead this course than Philip Harper.
Speaking about the workshop days, Philip said: “In my 20 years developing as a band conductor, I have often thought deeply about what it is exactly I am trying to achieve - the essence of my art. When BBE asked me to take a national lead on this very topic I was very excited to have the chance to share my experience in a way which could potentially benefit all levels of banding. I'm very much looking forward to meeting a wide spectrum of many like-minded people across the country in these workshops, which I hope will be inspirational to all”.
