Embedded: BBC Symphony Orchestra
I have been awarded a residency with the BBC Symphony Orchestra as part of the Embedded scheme run by Sound and Music. I will spend a year working with the orchestra through workshops and mentoring, and write a piece to be premiered by the BBCSO conducted by Garry Walker.
Also on the scheme are Ben Oliver and Aaron Holloway-Nahum, and the three of us will workshop sections of music with the orchestra in March and April before the concert at the BBC’s Maida Vale Studios in November 2013. The performances will also be recorded for BBC Radio 3. It’s fantastically exciting to be working with such a phenomenal orchestra, and to have so much opportunity for developing and improving the piece.
