Our unprecedented commitment to the music of women composers throughout the 2018/19 academic year.
Drawing on centuries of music past and present, Trinity Laban ensured that at least half of the music programmed for the multitude of varied public performances on its landmark Greenwich campus and in venues across London in 2018/19 was by women composers.
Venus Blazing encompassed
60 concerts and opera performances
by the conservatoire’s large-scale student performing groups in the various musical genres for which Trinity Laban is known, including
classical music, opera, and jazz
Introduction to Venus Blazing
Henriette Renié's Harp Concerto in C minor
Performed by TL student Noelia Cotuna
Hollie Harding: 'Melting, Shifting, Liquid World'
PHd student Hollie Harding’s eco-political Melting, Shifting, Liquid World was premiered on the 16 March at the Maritime Museum’s iconic Great Map.
Combining innovative audio technology, promenading musicians, and recordings of Arctic sea ice, the innovative piece reimagined the traditional concert experience to explore themes of climate change and ocean pollution.
