The day will consist of eleven sessions, beginning with a welcome by Head of Learning at the Liverpool Philharmonic, Lucy Geddes. An interactive session on technical production will be the first session of the day, looking into working with light and sound desks and hosted by Dave Woodward, Emma Carey and Michael Woods of the Liverpool Philharmonic.

Participants can also attend talks on how to start a music ensemble with Adam Szabo of the Manchester Collective, health and wellbeing as a musician, led by physiotherapist Dr Sarah Upjohn, and can also learn about music distribution and consumption with HR professional Brian Newman, Vanessa Bakewell of Facebook and video producer Ben Horrigan of Studio 91 Media.
