CMC Composer Anselm McDonnell has been appointed to the London Symphony Orchestra Jerwood Composer+ scheme.

Announced earlier this month, Anselm McDonnell is one of two composers who will participate in this 15-month placement, developing and delivering two artistic projects while gaining entrepreneurial skills through mentoring by the London Symphony Orchestra (LSO) staff.

The LSO Jerwood Composer+ scheme includes access to composition workshops and mentoring from other composers, industry professionals and musicians to allow participants to develop their artistic practice. Through the programme they showcase works of their own, as well as works by other composers.

On the announcement of this appointment, Anselm said:

It’s both challenging and extremely rewarding to work with such excellent musicians. It’s going to be a fantastic opportunity for thinking outside the box.

Both composers on the scheme present their first concerts in January and March 2024 at LSO St Luke’s.
