LSO Composer in Residence's showcase performance inspired by 575 Wandsworth Road

LSO Composer in Residence workshop at 575 Wandsworth Road, London

Cevanne Horrocks-Hopayian is our very first Composer in Residence through a partnership with the London Symphony Orchestra (LSO). The first year of her residency featured a series of workshops at 575 Wandsworth Road, involving Cevanne and musicians from the LSO. The first year of the residency culminates with a Showcase performance featuring her work on the 28 November 2015.

Cevanne is using her two-year residency to work with LSO musicians to meaningfully interpret the history of the house and the exquisite work of Khadambi Asalache. Throughout the first year, Cevanne worked with members of the local community, including the Festival Chorus Wandsworth, Armenian community, and the LSO Digital Technology Group to compose and perform original works. Members of the public are invited to hear the results of the first year of workshops at a Showcase performance on the 28 November 2015.
