1 – 2pm: Talk and Q&A
2-2.30pm: Tea break
2.30 – 4pm: Workshop: ‘Leading a rhythm section from the keyboard’

Nick is a musical director, orchestrator and arranger, composer, performer, and alumnus of St Catherine’s College. His recent work includes developing a new musical adaptation of David Nichols's 'Starter For Ten' at the Bristol Old Vic, and returning to MD the West End transfer of Next To Normal from the Donmar Warehouse, where it received four Olivier nominations.

The afternoon will be relaxed and open to all, there is no fee and no experience is necessary to attend the talk or to be an observer at the workshop. Some experience of playing the piano is recommended in order to participate in the workshop. Join us for either (or both) sessions to discover more about career paths in music and/or theatre and to learn how to lead a band effectively.
