Trinity Laban musicians support ISM Make Music Work event

 

Trinity Laban alumni and teaching staff will perform at the ISM's Make Music Work event on Tuesday 31 March 2015, celebrating the Conservatoire’s long term partnership with the ISM.

Make Music Work aims to empower performers and composers and arm them with the tools they need to build a successful and sustainable career in music while avoiding the many common pitfalls.

The day-long event will include four topical panel discussions featuring established young performers and composers, and key figures from the music industry who will share their experiences and invaluable insight into the music profession, including Gabriel Prokofiev. The Prokofiev family has had a long-standing connection with Trinity Laban’s Blackheath Halls, and Gabriel ran a Nonclassical meets Trinity Laban event as part of the Halls’ 2013 Prokofiev Festival.

The day also features performances by Juice Vocal Ensemble and Westcombe Brass (pictured).

Westcombe Brass is an exciting and versatile brass quintet. Formed in 2010 the group met at Trinity Laban where they all studied. Westcombe Brass quickly made a name for itself winning the highly regarded Philip Jones Brass Ensemble competition in 2011.

Juice Vocal Ensemble is at the forefront of the UK’s experimental/classical scene, performing new vocal music which draws on classical, world music, jazz, folk, pop, improvisation and theatre. Juice member Kerry Andrew teaches composition at Trinity Laban’s Junior Trinity for gifted and talented young musicians. Kerry also recently won two categories at the British Composer Awards 2014.
