The Hermes Experiment are delighted to present their SONG Virtual Composition Project, taking place in 2021. Designed to withstand the challenges of the current pandemic, the ensemble will work virtually with state secondary school students from five different London boroughs. Students will have the opportunity to compose songs for the ensemble and receive personalised feedback and recordings. Watch this space for the presentation of the project’s Online Song Gallery in March 2021 which will feature video recordings of participants’ compositions.
The ensemble is extremely grateful to Arts Council England who are funding this project through the National Lottery Project Grants.
If you’d like to read more about this project, or even have a look at some of the resources on offer for young composers, follow this link to project page on The Hermes Experiment’s website.
We’ve been beavering away over the festive season to get this project up and running for the New Year – we’re really looking forward to receiving and working on student compositions!
