Recent Practical Projects
The annual Practical Project is run at the beginning of each academic year. It involves all new first year students along with other undergraduates and visiting students, and is essentially a large-scale music theatre production involving an intensive five-week rehearsal period, culminating in several public performances in the University's Concert Series.
The Practical Project is led by a different member of staff each year and often reflects their own research interests. Over recent years it has varied from a traditionally-staged baroque cantata one year, to a newly-devised music theatre piece the next, with a laptop orchestra thrown in for good measure!
