I'm really delighted to say on June 30th at the amazing LSO St Luke's on Old Street in London, at 7.30pm, there will be a portrait concert of the recent work of Philip Venables, who I worked with for the London Sinfonietta Blue Touch Paper project on our piece the Revenge of Miguel Cotto. The concert will be one hour and is free to attend.
The concert features five recent pieces, all focusing on muscular music, spoken text and themes of violence, socialist protest and memory. Performers will include the Ligeti Quartet, Ashot Sarkissjan, The Warehouse Ensemble, Melinda Maxwell, Leigh Melrose, Richard Baker and The London Sprechchor. The concert is being supported by LSO Soundhub, the Esmee Fairbairn Charitable Trust and Arts Council England.
It will include a performance of the Revenge of Miguel Cotto, so my sound poetry and words will grace a really incredible stage once again, something I am very proud of.
