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 musicologist and broadcaster Katy Hamilton, the day will feature performances, talks, panel sessions and opportunities to meet and engage with industry leaders. Our twelve Composer Academy participants bring world premieres to the stage, following intensive workshops with our two professional ensembles drawn from members of Chineke!, The Carice Singers and Course Director Daniel Kidane.

Special prices available for music industry attendees and students in higher education with entry to additional talks and networking events. Booking form coming shortly.
