Failure. Could it be the best thing that ever happened to you? Following its launch in 2019, our annual day for the classical music industry explores the concept of failure and its role in the creative process. Led by performer, broadcaster and Artistic Director of Goldfield Productions Kate Romano, the day will feature performances, talks, panel sessions and opportunities to meet and engage with industry leaders. Our eight Composer Academy participants bring world premieres to the stage, following intensive workshops with our professional ensemble drawn from members of Chineke!
