LPO Soundworks Diaries: 9 April 2016

On Saturday 9 April, young musicians and young dancers from Rambert's Quicksilver came together for their performance of Walking Shadows – a culmination of a four day intensive project composing, choreographing and rehearsing for a collaborative piece inspired by Shakespeare’s Macbeth. After their performance, we caught up with a couple of the young musicians and dancers to hear their thoughts on the week, and to find out their favourite moments.

How have you enjoyed this week?

L: It’s been a completely different process. Normally you just learn the choreography but we’ve had to learn the music as well. It’s been a new experience.
