Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music & Dance is proud to announce Venus Blazing, an unprecedented commitment to the music of women composers throughout the next academic year.
Drawing on centuries of music past and present, Trinity Laban will ensure that at least half of the music it chooses for the multitude of varied public performances it mounts on its landmark Greenwich campus and in venues across London in 2018/19 will be by women composers.
This encompasses the 50+ concerts and opera performances given each year 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.
