We sat down with our Executive Director, to chat about what what Nonclassical is all about and what you can expect from our live events...
We are delighted to have Workers Union Ensemble performing at our next event on April 12. Their programme is made up of some of their favourite works from the past 9 years of commissioning new music and will showcase the different sights and sounds of WUE.
Freya Waley-Cohen, one of our Associate Composers, was commissioned by the Street Orchestra of London (SOL) for their upcoming tour (13-16 April). Freya told us a bit about composing for the 40-piece pop-up orchestra and her new work Bandstand.
Nonclassical's brand new project is Street Orchestra London, an orchestra that challenges stereotypes by taking classical music onto the streets and into unorthodox spaces to expose new people to classical music. Horn player Rachael O'Brien takes us behind-the-scenes.
...although there was still some of that.
Fresh out of sixth form, living in London with a year to go until university, I wanted to experience the current music industry from a different perspective. Marketing, as opposed to composing or performing.
