Support the five15 project
FIVE COMPOSERS. FIVE YEARS. FIFTEEN NEW WORKS.
The London Oriana Choir has launched a ground-breaking musical venture championing the musical talent of women composers.
The heart of the project, known as five15, is the commissioning of 15 brand new choral works from five women over five years, but it will also include a programme of new performances, educational projects, recordings and other initiatives to raise the profile of classical music written by women across the UK, as well as helping to encourage and develop the talents of new young writers.
