Jeff Moore named Collaborative Composer in association with LMP

We’re pleased to announce that Jeff Moore has been named Collaborative Composer in Association with the LMP.

Creating exciting opportunities for children to experience the joy of live performance first-hand is an important part of the our education work in the community, and our wonderful collaborations with Jeff Moore have made this possible on a enormous scale, allowing hundreds of young budding musicians to perform alongside the orchestra.

Most recently, we performed his side-by-side piece Fiddler’s Hill in venues across the country that include Fairfield Halls, St John ‘s Upper Norwood, Cromer, and Forest Row.

This year, enabled by the generosity of three benefactors and Croydon Music and Arts, we commissioned Jeff to compose a new side-by-side piece using every instrument of the orchestra, as well as choirs. Take Time had its world premiere at Fairfield Halls on 27th September and was performed by LMP and over 400 young musicians from Croydon to great acclaim. We are extremely excited to be performing this commission again on 27th October at the Kidbrooke Park Music Festival in Forest Row. Here’s a snippet of the world premiere of Fairfield!
