Our current project is a collaboration with PRS for Music and the Cheltenham Music Festival: a commissioning opportunity for women composers, a new song to enter the Wild Plum Songbook.
Six composers took part in an exhilarating two-day workshop and we have chosen one to be commissioned. We’ll announce the result very soon. Please see this page for details.
On February 11th we aanounced our new collaboration with the Britten-Pears Foundation, and the opportunity we have to offer free artists’ residencies – primarily for composers of all genres, but also open to writers and librettists – at Benjamin Britten’s home, The Red House. More details here
The first concert with a Wild Plum Arts commission was at the Wigmore Hall, London, on June 29th 2018, with Lucy Schaufer and Huw Watkins, and it featured new commissions by John Corigliano and Michele Brourman. Reviews and feedback are here.
We also performed the programme at the Buxton International Festival, the Ravinia Festival and St John’s Smith Square. Plans are underway to record The Class of 1938 on CD.
