LIVE COMPOSERS – a lesson in creating new music

Last week Natalie Clarke, Lewisham Live Co-ordinator, visited a Live Composers rehearsal with Deptford Green School, and got behind the scenes.

With the help of teachers and a professional mentor, students were given the support they needed to create brand new music, which was performed last Friday on a professional stage at the Albany Deptford.

Natalie says, "It was good to see such talented young people confidently talking about their pieces, making decisions on how parts should be played and not being afraid to trial new things."

The Live Composers project was devised and run by Lewisham Music Hub and is part of Lewisham Live 2017. Read the full article on the Lewisham LIVE website.

There are 7 shows/events still to go in this year's festival, see the listings here.
