Take part in Six Grooves

Richard Durrant Ukulele Workshops

Sign up for the workshops to get involved in the world premiere of Richard Durrant’s new concerto ‘Six Grooves for Ukulele’ at the Ropetackle Arts Centre in Shoreham-by-Sea on 10 September.

How do I take part?

Sign up online for just £35 to take part in a series of workshops and the world premiere performance of Richard’s exciting new Ukulele Concerto. 

The distinctive sound of a large ‘chorus’ of Ukulele players are an integral part of this new work. They provide an antiphonal effect and beautiful background layers to the solo and orchestra. This also connects the work with the general ethos of the instrument – one of inclusion.

Richard also explains how this is just the start of the journey:

“Every audience uke player at each of our concerts will have completed a short series of workshops and one big rehearsal, this prepares them to take part in the performance but it also earns them a Six Grooves passport entitling them to take part in any future performance of the work anywhere in the world.”

Richard will prepare and rehearse a group of audience ukulele players to perform at the premiere on 10th September. Come along to the workshops and be part of the performance!
