Our 2020/21 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 annual programme usually consists 2 main projects:-

1. A Call for Scores open to all composers. We workshop the pieces and choose some for our annual concert

2. A project with London Composers' Forum, in which their members write pieces on a specific theme.

These come together in our concert annual early-autumn concert. We also make a series of recordings of some of the pieces.

Our dates for the remainder of 2020, and for 2021 are currently under discussion.
