Exciting news for West Midlands Modulos: this year, your regional Modulo Meet will take place at the brand new building of the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire. It will be supported by RBC's in-house learning and participation ensemble, the LEAP Ensemble.
All West Midlands schools will also have an in-school improvisation workshop with members of LEAP, in preparation for the improvisation workshop taking place at the Regional Modulo Meet.
What is the Modulo Programme?
Calling all music teachers and community music leaders! Give your young musicians the chance to perform as part of a large-scale orchestra on a world class stage.
The Modulo Programme supports music teachers to establish a small instrumental ensemble in their school or community for students aged 11-18. The programme aims to help music teachers lead a rewarding instrument ensemble for students of any instrument skill level who are keen in take part in music. We provide teachers with bespoke, mixed ability arrangements which cater to all ability levels and instruments, as well as rehearsal plans and resources. Modulos come together twice a year to perform as a large-scale orchestra, regionally and nationally.
Last year, 30 Modulos from schools in London, the West Midlands, the North West and Yorkshire took part, performing excerpts from Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition, as well as their own compositions.
