New commissioning opportunity for female composers – M Magazine

Cheltenham Music Festival, Wild Plum Arts and PRS for Music have teamed up to present a development and commissioning opportunity for female composers and those who identify as women. The Wild Plum Songbook will offer six composers the chance to attend a two-day workshop in London and have their work commissioned for Cheltenham Music Festival’s COMPOSIUM.

 

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.
