As part of this years Summer School, we invited our young composers to collaboratively curate playlists featuring the music that they love and has inspired them during their time at the Sound and Music Summer School. We’re delighted to now be able to share these playlists, spotlighting sounds across classical, pop, metal and more, showing the breadth of musical influence and background our composers bring to the Summer School. Press play and take a listen to the mixtapes they have created!
