LSO Jerwood Composer+ is a new programme that will support early career composers in programming, planning and delivering chamber-scale concerts in the Jerwood Hall at LSO St Luke’s, including work of their own developed through the programme.

Two composers will be accepted onto the LSO Jerwood Composer+ programme each year for a 16-month placement with the LSO. The composers will each be given the opportunity to programme, plan and deliver two concerts at the Jerwood Hall at LSO St Luke’s, enabling them to showcase new music by both themselves and other composers whilst gaining entrepreneurial skills through mentoring from key LSO staff. The concerts will make a substantial contribution to the diversity of the music programme for audiences at LSO St Luke’s.
