with Owen kilfeather

Sun. 20th december | 2 - 3pm

Calling all musicians and music lovers between the ages of 9 and 12: The Extremely Online Ensemble is an interactive music workshop that blends composition, improvisation and serious fun – whether you’ve been playing for ages or you’ve never played a note before, everyone is invited! We’ll be using a fantastic new online music-maker, so you don’t even need an instrument; all you need on the day is a desire to play music with others and express yourself.

He currently plays with/writes for Miss Foreign Affairs, Ensemble PMV and Gulpt, and has also worked as a theatre tech, bookseller, storyteller, teacher, translator and sea turtle hospital staffer.
