SONG Virtual Composition Project 2021

The Hermes Experiment are delighted to present their SONG Virtual Composition Project, taking place in 2021. Designed to withstand the challenges of the current pandemic, the ensemble will work virtually with state secondary school students from five different London boroughs. Students will have the opportunity to compose songs for the ensemble and receive personalised feedback and recordings. Watch this space for the presentation of our Online Song Gallery in March 2021 which will feature video recordings of participants’ compositions.

This project is funded by Arts Council England through the National Lottery Project Grants – the ensemble are extremely grateful to them.
