LPO Young Composers Programme

I'm delighted to have been selected to participate in the 2015/16 London Philharmonic Orchestra's Young Composers Programme. 

The LPO Young Composers programme offers emerging composers the opportunity to workshop a new piece with the Orchestra's musicians across a year, leading to a public performance, showcasing the new works, at the Queen Elizabeth Hall. The participant composers are mentored by the LPO's Composer in Residence, who provides expertise and guidance in a series of seminars and workshops. 

Celia's Toyshop selected for workshops with Kokoro and Bristol Ensemble

I'm very pleased to have been selected for two workshop performances, at the Annual RMA research students' conference in Bristol on the 9th January, and also the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra Composers' Day on Saturday 28 February 2015 at the lighthouse in Poole. 

At both of the workshops, I'll be presenting Celia's Toyshop, a collection of miniatures for sextet, each inspired by a toy of some kind.

 

Sound and Music Re-launch New Voices

I'm delighted to be included in the re-launch of Sound and Music's New Voices scheme.  Selected early and mid-career composers are being showcased by Sound and Music, and there are over 50 composers in the first cohort.  Showcasing some of the most exciting compositional talent in the UK at the moment, I'm delighted to be included.  Check out the website, which features scores, recordings and other media here.

I'm delighted and honoured to have been awarded a place on the London Symphony Orchestra's 2014 Panufnik Young Composers Scheme.  I'll be working with the LSO for the next year to produce a 3 minute piece for the orchestra.

The LSO Discovery Panufnik Young Composers Scheme is an exciting initiative offering six emerging composers each year the opportunity to write for a world-class symphony orchestra.
