As a result of a collaboration with PRS for Music and the Cheltenham Music Festival we have a new song to enter the Wild Plum Songbook.
Six composers took part in an exhilarating two-day workshop and we have chosen Lisa Robertson to be commissioned. Please see this page for details.
In February we announced our new collaboration with the Britten-Pears Foundation, and the opportunity we have to offer free artists’ residencies at Benjamin Britten’s home, The Red House. From 47 applications we have chosen 21 artists to come and work on our MADE AT THE RED HOUSE residency. More details here
On November 2nd we will be performing for the first time at the Wiltshire Music Centre in collaboration with Bath’s “excellent” (The Observer) Camerata in a programme called MAKE OR BREAK. Details to follow.
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.
