In this project, participants will work alongside Holly Mathieson and professional musicians from the Nevis Ensemble to develop musical conducting skills. Participants will choose from a selection of familiar pieces of music, arranged for string quartet, and be guided by Holly as they learn to lead the musicians. The focus is on coming to know our physical selves a little better and recognising that our bodies can be a source of empowerment and authority.
