Picture Gallery Composer-in-Residence Showcase 1: Choir of Royal Holloway
We are pleased to showcase the newest cohort of the Picture Gallery Composer-in-Residence Programme, presenting new music inspired by our beautiful Picture Gallery and its collection. Curated by composer Nathan James Dearden and Assistant Curator Imogen Tedbury, we are thrilled to showcase two of the six successful applicants and their new works written especially for the applauded Choir of Royal Holloway, under the guidance of their conductor Rupert Gough.
This year the composers have been tasked to compose part-songs, setting poems from Robert Fraser’s poetry collection The Founder’s Gift, written in direct response to paintings in the collection.
This event is part of the Choir of Royal Holloway's Midweek Music Series.
Admission free but booking is essential.
