Six composers from across the UK have been selected take part in Wild Plum Songbook, a new career development initiative from Wild Plum Arts, artistic director Lucy Shauffer, in partnership with the Performing Rights Society and the Cheltenham Music Festival. Composers Ella Jarman-Pinto, Janet Oates, Kate Marlais, Lisa Robertson, Rose Miranda Hall and Sarah Lianne Lewis will take part in practical workshops where they will receive feedback from composers Joanna Lee and Errollyn Wallen, as well as the opportunity to have their works recorded by mezzo-soprano singer, Rachael Lloyd and pianist Lana Bode.

Wild Plum Arts and Cheltenham Music Festival will commission one of the works from the workshops to be premiered during Cheltenham Music Festival’s Composium – a new one-day industry-wide event for composers, publishers, music industry leaders and influencers. The chosen work will also be included in the Wild Plum Songbook, a growing portfolio of newly-commissioned works.
