Talent development - coaching
Offering new compositional and stage talent a place to develop is a priority for Slagwerk Den Haag (SDH). Since its inception over 35 years ago, SDH has regularly worked in close collaboration with young composers, often in response to a given composition assignment. New stage talent - young percussionists as well as young artists from other disciplines - are given opportunities to develop and receive coaching as part of the KOnStrukt series within Young SDH and as part of regular SDH-concerts.
KOnStrukt is a series of informally presented concerts by/for young percussionists and composers. The KOnStrukt series is organised in cooperation with the Royal Conservatoire in The Hague and Korzo Theater. Young SDH comprises a pool of young percussionists, many of whom are still students, who are given the opportunity to realise various productions under the SDH umbrella.
In the field of talent development, SDH works with the following:
- the Royal Conservatoire in The Hague and Korzo Theater: KOnstrukt series - informal presentations of new work or sketches of new work
- Club Guy & Roni / Poetic Disasters Club: multidisciplinary talent development
- The National Youth Orchestra of the Netherlands: Pressure Cooker - NJO Music Summer: workshops and concerts
- TROMP Percussion Eindhoven: cooperation with competition winners
In addition to talent development, SDH is active in education. For more information, click here.
