The London Graduate Orchestra was founded by conductor Claire Lampon and composer Kemal Yusuf in 2013, with the aim of offering emerging graduates the opportunity to perform in a high standard orchestra before entering the professional field.
As part of the Portfolio programme, Sound and Music and the London Graduate Orchestra offer an opportunity for two composers to develop new works for the orchestra.
The opportunity is ideal for composers who are fascinated by the sound of the orchestra, and who will stretch themselves in exploring new timbres, textures and sounds with the group.
The London Graduate Orchestra explained:
"We're thrilled to be working with Sound and Music on the Portfolio scheme and are excited to work closely with two composers in creating new, boundary-pushing works for the orchestra."
Sound and Music's Creative Project Leader, Chloë Richardson explained:
"The London Graduate Orchestra is a dynamic group of musicians entering the professional arena. This is an exciting opportunity for a composer to work closely with them in exploring the huge potential offered by the orchestral soundworld."

The London Graduate Orchestra was founded by conductor Claire Lampon and composer Kemal Yusuf in 2013. Our aim is to offer emerging graduates the opportunity to perform in a high standard orchestra before entering the professional field. Made up of the finest young musicians in London, the London Graduate Orchestra provides a platform for its members to showcase their talent and capabilities. This extends to young composers who have the opportunity to have their music workshopped and performed by the LGO. We also hold open rehearsals for young conductors to lead the orchestra in a constructive and welcoming environment.
Aimed at talented composers at an early stage in their career, Sound and Music’s Portfolio scheme provides a key development opportunity for composers to create new work with and for some of the UK’s leading ensembles and presenters of new music.
