Six composers were selected to develop their writing for chamber ensemble over a series of intensive Sunday workshops with tuition and development work given by Lynne Plowman. These included a session on ‘rehearsing and conducting your work with ensemble’ by Wales-based New Music conductor Michael Rafferty. Student’s pieces were workshopped by the Berkeley Ensemble which made a studio recording of each and gave their premieres at the project’s final concert at Cardiff University.
