LSO Jerwood Composer+ supports 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 scheme.

Two composers each year develop two concerts over a 16-month placement. Mentored by key LSO staff, they build skills and experience in programming, event planning, budgeting, marketing, fundraising and evaluation.

The programme provides:

  • the opportunity to plan and deliver showcase concerts at LSO St Luke’s, giving participating composers creative freedom to explore classical and/or cross-genre collaborations and unconventional concert formats and timings to appeal to target audiences
  • a total fixed budget per composer of £10,000 for both events, managed by the LSO
  • a £5,000 bursary and reasonable travel expenses for those living outside of London
  • mentoring from an established external music sector professional, such as a composition teacher, festival promoter, or media specialist
  • access to LSO composition workshops and masterclasses with established composers and LSO musicians
  • access to the facilities at LSO St Luke’s
