Our 2018/19 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 2018 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 in response to William Blake's poem 'Night'.

These projects come together with the performance of the best pieces at our concert on September 29th. We will also be making a series of recordings of pieces from our annual concert.

We will have a similar programme of rehearsals and workshops in 2019.
