We are thrilled to announce that we have commissioned composer Dani Howard for our 2018 summer season at Bold Tendencies in Peckham. Dani was selected from our Open Call last year and will be writing a new work for local schoolchildren to perform with the Orchestra and conductor Christopher Stark. This piece will be a fantastic addition to our existing body of commissions for children's choir and orchestra and we can’t wait to hear it! Sign up to our newsletter to be the first to find out about performance dates and to book tickets when we make our season announcement later this year.
