This project took place over about 6 months and took advantage of a combination of technology and on-site facilitation to create a number of workshops, each devoted to a different piece of music. We worked with the music after-school group (bukatsu) at the prestigious Keio Futsubu School, and assistants from the Japan Philharmonic Orchestra
It was particularly interesting to run a workshop from Madrid when we were working with De Falla’s 3-cornered hat. We were able to talk about all sorts of different aspects of Spain, and in some cases I was able to show these from my hotel room by holding my laptop out of the window!
This workshop concert was held in Yuport Hall in Tokyo. It was attended by all the school students, staff and parents; approximately 1500 people.
