I’m really delighted to have been commissioned by the London Sinfonietta to compose a new 12-15 minute piece for large ensemble for the eighth Sinfonietta Academy in July 2016. The academy is an intensive week-long course for emerging performers and conductors including rehearsals, masterclasses and networking opportunities culminating in a public performance. This course provides experience and training in performing as part of a contemporary music ensemble, with coaching from the London Sinfonietta Principal Players. This year’s academy will be led by Thierry Fischer. Better get writing!
