Our 2017 Programme
We are a unique orchestra working for composers. We invite them to send us new music. We workshop the pieces, give feedback to the composers, and we perform and record the revised versions of the best pieces.

Our 2017 programme consists 2 main projects:-

1. A Call for Scores open to all composers. We workshopped the pieces we received in March.

2. A project with London Composers' Forum to write pieces to accompany a silent film.

These projects come together with the performance of the best pieces at our concert on September 30th. We will also be making a series of recordings of pieces from our annual concert.
