Roadrunner Trio Academy

An annual week long event, where composers get a chance to write for the Roadrunner trio. Edition two of the academy will take place in Amsterdam (Netherlands) January 20-26 2020.

During daily workshops composers get a chance to work with the ensemble and the composer-in-residence. Composers can share ideas, try new ideas and learn closely about the instruments and different compositional approaches. Composer Farshid Samandari will join Roadrunner to lead these workshops. The finished pieces will be presented in a public concert at the end of the week.

Roadrunner Trio is a unique ensemble consisting of accordion, clarinet and cello. The trio was founded in 2014. Three musicians came together to create a 'pool' for experimenting with new ideas regarding repertoire, arranging, improvising and performance. Roadrunner is an environment where the musicians challenge each other, question contemporary/old customs and approach new ways to really connect with the audience. In addition to contemporary music, the trio also uses melodies and elements from traditional music - both classical and folk music.

Costs In person participants: €350,-
Online participants: €250,- (to attend and follow the sessions online through Skype or similar programs)
