Roadrunner Trio Academy: an annual one-week event where young and upcoming composers get
a chance to write for Roadrunner. Edition three of the academy will take place in january 2022, in
Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
During daily workshops 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. This year, composer Farshid Samandari will be
leading the workshops together with Roadrunner.
The finalized pieces will be presented in a public concert at the end of the week in the
Uilenburgersjoel, plus a recording of the finalized work.
Roadrunner Trio is a unique ensemble consisting of accordion, clarinet and cello, founded in 2014.
The three musicians came together to create a 'pool' for experimenting with new ideas regarding
repertoire, arranging, improvising and performance. Roadrunner is an environment where the
musicians challenge each other, question contemporary/old customs and approach new ways to
really connect with the audience. In addition to contemporary music, the trio also uses melodies
and elements from traditional music - both classical and folk music.
