Dervish really enjoyed their first ever appearance at the festival Inter Celtique at Lorient. Ironically the band had never appeared at the prestigious event and their show at the Espace Marine will be remembered for some time.

Calling young instrumental and vocal ensembles – trios, quartets, quintets – classical & traditional – or young musicians/singers interested in forming ensembles. Improve your ensemble performances through mentoring and performance with professional musicians from Dervish & West Ocean String Quartet.
The week will intersperse fun, improvised collective performance with more serious ensemble work. Participants will be actively encouraged to participate in the music arrangements and develop your understanding of structure in classical and traditional music.
There will be two sessions daily – 10.00am-12.30pm; 1-3.30pm. Each day to begin with a collective briefing of what lies ahead and to finish with one or two ensemble performances of that day’s progress for the collective. In between, the ensembles will work with their assigned tutors. There will be pre-existing ensembles, there may be individuals that we group together – perhaps 8 ensembles altogether including choral. To allow for maximum mutual benefit and greatest artistic development, tutors will rotate over the course of the week. We will also aim to identify a piece that all would perform at the week’s end, one that could grow over the week and be developed both within individual ensembles and perhaps as a closing group performance each day.Dervish and WOSQ would also give short performances to students over the week.
