Royal College of Music Junior Department Showcase

New pieces by young composers



Join us live from the Royal College of Music as we showcase nine new works for tenor and small ensemble, written by young composers aged 11-18. Inspired by Luke Bedford's London Sinfonietta commission In the Voices of the Living, the young composers have collected and created their own texts before setting them to music. This live-stream will be the culmination of a project which took place this Spring, in which the young people were mentored by Luke and received advice from London Sinfonietta musicians on writing for each of their instruments.

Featuring music by:
Kathleen Archbold  
Chelsea Becker 
Alice Knight 
Vincent Ji  
Jack Marley 
Tristan McCardel 
Alec Thurbin   
Asher Saipe 
Aurelia Walker

Daniel Norman tenor
London Sinfonietta
