Young Composer of the Year

Date: Saturday 7th May; 7.00pm
Venue: Palmers Green United Reformed Church
In association with the foreSOUND school of music, we’re so excited for our annual education project encouraging and training the next generation of composers.  Numerous young foreSOUND students have been selected to attend an instrument introduction day with our players (27th Feb) and take composition lessons with our Artistic Director Aaron Holloway-Nahum.  They’ll then compose new pieces (often their very first) and we’ll perform them on this concert, alongside John Tavener’s To A Child Dancing In the Wind.  Recordings of all the pieces will be released on our media pages.
