Live Composers

This year Live Composers saw Deptford Green and Prendergast Secondary

School work with the incredible multi instrumentalist and composer Sarah

Freestone. Freestone is a member of the BBC Concert Orchestra. She began

her musical career aged 7 playing and singing in folk clubs. She went on to

study guitar and violin as joint principal studies at the Royal Academy of

Music, winning several prizes and awards on the way. She also studied bass

guitar with the late great Jeff Cline, playing with the Royal Academy of Music

Big Band. She has performed worldwide with artists including Alison Moyet

and the legendary Lee Hazlewood! Freestones list of achievements are

lengths, and we are so pleased that the young people of Lewisham had the

chance to learn from a world-class composer.

The 18 young composers each performed their new exciting piece which was

inspired by Trinity Labans ‘Venus Blazing’ programme and aimed to respond

to and celebrate writing by women. The composers;

Jacob Evans

Dima Semir and Kaya Burton

Camilla Villamagua, Dehanna Sehi, Diane Diaz Grijalva and Ranya Bouchat

Leon Human – Resolving Arguments

Emily Gambrill

Prosper Challice

Ella Cain, Erin Parson and Shannon Stephens

Ademola Olayede, Elisha Kiala, Nefertareen McFarlane, Rolitta Semmanda

and Tobias Enobakhare

Jasmine Robinson and Luanna Hamlet

Joe McNicoll – The Seagull

A huge well done to everyone who took part and performed in the night, and a

special thanks to the Trinity Laban Students who assisted on the project and

performed on the night!
