LSO Jerwood Composer+, LSO Discovery


LSO Jerwood Composer+ supports composers in programming, planning and delivering two chamber-scale concerts in the Jerwood Hall at LSO St Luke’s including work of their own developed through the programme. Composers will gain entrepreneurial skills around programming for specific audiences, planning and organising events, marketing and budgeting, gaining knowledge and practical experience in how to establish and promote themselves professionally. Guidance and expertise will be provided by LSO staff and an external mentor. Composers will also access compositional workshops and masterclasses with other composers and LSO musicians, supporting the development of their own musical practice.

Two composers will be accepted onto the LSO Jerwood Composer+ scheme, which will run from September 2018 for up to 16 months. Applications are welcome from outstanding early-career composers of any musical background who would like to gain skills to support their professional development, work with world-class orchestral musicians and contribute to the concert programme for audiences at LSO St Luke’s. Applicants may not be in full time formal education or training.
