An award-winning composer has joined the talented team leading a new event which promises to offer a complete musical experience for singers and instrumentalists.

The first Alnwick Music Camp will be staged in the Northumberland Hall over eight days in July, culminating in a live concert at the venue.

The event, brought to the town by Spectrum – the Cultural Exchange Specialists, will be led by British conductor Kevin Field and Australian soprano Nicole Thomson.

And as preparations continue, organisers have announced that Steve Luck has come on board and will help participants compose their own music during the camp.

Steve has won two Royal Television Society awards for Professional Excellence in Music and is regarded in his field as a highly-professional musician, composer and teacher, inspiring students and colleagues alike with his knowledge and experience.

A classically-trained pianist with a music degree, he has a wealth of music- industry involvement working with bands, singers, songwriters, studios and labels.

As a solo artist, Steve Luck is an active member of the Music Writer’s Committee of the Musicians Union and founder of the Guild of Northern Media Composers.

The camp is suitable for anyone aged 11 and over, whatever their ability. There are no auditions, but some performance experience may help.

The event, which starts on Saturday, July 18, will focus on a range of music from around the world.

The music will be rehearsed and a decision will be made about what should be performed at the concert on Saturday, July 25, at 3pm.

For an application form, email and the deadline for entries is Friday, July, 3. A non-refundable £40 admin charge to be paid after first day. For more information, visit
