Response-workshop for Cathy Milliken’s “Earth Plays” (2015)
At the Response-workshop, children and teenagers make their own music. Together with musicians from the symphony orchestra they improvise and experiment with different sounds, thus developing audible responses to other works, by playing around with its themes, tones and instruments. This time, things were flipped over: 30 students from grade 7c of the Maria-Ward-High School in Munich-Nymphenburg created a musical preface to Cathy Milliken’s “Earth Plays” for mezzo-soprano and orchestra, together with the composer Cathy Milliken and the musicians Sabine Staudinger (alto) and Nicolaus Richter de Vroe (violin) of the Bavarian Radio Choir and Symphony Orchestra.
