Adopt a Composer

The HSO was delighted to have been chosen for the 2016/2017 Adopt a Composer scheme. The scheme pairs an amateur ensemble with an emerging composer, with the composer working on a new piece specifically for the group over the year. We were fortunate to work with the enormously talented Adriano Adewale who wrote SUITE DIALOGUES for us.

Adopt a composer is run by Making Music in partnership with Sound and Music, in association with BBC Radio 3, UK project funded by PRS For Music Foundation and the Phillip and Dorothy Green Music Trust.
