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
