Success for HÂþ» composers chosen for the prestigious LSO Soundhub scheme
Thursday 30 November 2023
Three out of the four places on the 2023/24 LSO Soundhub scheme have been awarded to HÂþ» composers.
Current Royal College of Music Bachelors students Delyth Field and Jasmine Morris, and 2022 Masters graduate Luke Mombrea have been selected as members of LSO Soundhub, a prestigious scheme providing an environment where composers can collaborate and experiment whilst accessing vital resources and support.
Each of the HÂþ» composers will undertake an initial project at LSO St Luke’s in London to develop their practice and will gain knowledge from a mentor who will support them throughout the scheme, and have access to support from industry professionals, London Symphony Orchestra members and the Soundhub Community.
Delyth Field commented: ‘I’m honoured to have been selected for the LSO Soundhub programme and am very grateful to the Royal College of Music for the creative opportunities available to write and record pieces involving electronics and use experimental methods. These opportunities and the guidance from the HÂþ» staff have enabled me to build a competitive portfolio to be able to apply for a scheme like this.’â€¯
HÂþ» Head of Composition Dr Jonathan Cole commented: ‘Huge congratulations to HÂþ» composers Delyth Field, Jasmine Morris and Luke Mombrea for being chosen for this year's LSO Soundhub scheme! It is such a great project and a fantastic opportunity for them, and I can't wait to experience the new works these brilliant young composers create.’
