A multi-faceted training course centered on musical outreaching that brings together different artists – in terms of aesthetics, working methods, disciplines, inspirations and cultures – under the direction of Mark Withers,  clarinettist with extensive experience in outreaching as the coordinator of participatory educational projects at the London Symphony Orchestra Discovery.

During this training artists learn, exchange and experiment with the tools and ways of doing musical outreach action to improve their practice in transmitting to and interacting with audiences. The Mediterranean Youth Orchestra and the Festival d’Aix producers of the session, encourage selected creative teams and interpreters by offering them the opportunity to practice with Passerelles’ partners and different audiences.
