Dave de Rose will be attending the Music Village as Resident Artist, spending the first few days in all the workshops as well as getting heavily involved in the running of each evening's jam sessions. During the initial days of the Music Village he will be selecting a few students from each workshop to create an ensemble, which will perform on the first day of Fengaros Festival. The group will rehearse outside of workshop hours and the music will be catered to the students' abilities making use of diverse music material including some of Dave's compositions,so as to present a final production that showcases the many aspects of their learning at the village. The ensemble will be collaborating on every aspect of the final performance, including scheduling rehearsals and managing all aspects of their preparation, from stage presentation to sound, as well as musical direction and arrangements. The group will be encouraged to stretch the compositions beyond recognition in order to create an original performance which showcases their personalities and creativity.
