The Roadrunner academy is an annual, one-week event where young and upcoming composers get a chance to write for Roadrunner. 

During the week, there will be daily workshops in which students get a chance to work with the ensemble and the composer in residence. Ideas can be shared with peers, one can try out new ideas and learn more about the instruments and different musical approaches. 

Our inaugural academy week was held in january, 2019. Curious to hear the results? Check out our soundcloud below.
