Festival Day

During the Festival Day in Maastricht on 1 October 2022, a variety of accessible and adventurous composition workshops will take place. Of the seven workshops offered, three are especially for children and young people. Both instrumentalists and singers can participate in all workshops. For everyone who prefers to 'just' play or sing, a Festival Ensemble and a Festival Choir will be formed once again. Both will rehearse challenging works from the CoMA library, espcially written for amateurs. In addition, workshops will be held for four composers who participated in the composition competition. The day will end with a spectacular concert, in which the three nominated works of the composition competition will be performed by CoMA Ensembles and the winner will be announced. And as icing on the cake, Ensemble88 will perform exciting works of the four jury members of the composition contest.
