Venus Blazing: celebrating women composers at Trinity Laban

Venus Blazing - Harriet Harman and students from Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance
Under the title of Venus Blazing, Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance's Autumn 2018 season celebrates the music of women composers. During Trinity Laban's Autumn season, 25 of the 37 works are by women.

There will be a new production of Thea Musgrave’s 1979 opera A Christmas Carol based on Dickens, presented by Trinity Laban Opera at Blackheath Halls. The symphonies of Louise Ferrenc and Grace Williams will be revived at Side by Side events, where students from Trinity Laban perform alongside mentors from the UK's leading orchestral musicians. Timothy Reynish will conduct the Trinity Laban Symphonic Winds in works by Thea Musgrave, Elizabeth Maconchy, Judith Bingham and Emily Howard, a concert which also celebrates Reynish's own 80th birthday.

There are also works by Errollyn Wallen, Grazyna Bacewicz, Kaija Saariaho, Sofia Gubaidulina, Imogen Holst, Elizabeth Maconchy, Lili Boulanger, Eleanor Daley, Meredith Monk and Judith Weir, plus extracts from the Mater Requiem by Rebecca Dale.

Full details from the Trinity Laban website.
