Composing Women program wins a Classical:NEXT Innovation Award

Composing Women program wins a Classical:NEXT Innovation Award

Liza Lim and the Composing Women program run by the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, the University of Sydney, have won one of three Classical:NEXT Innovation Awards, presented in an online ceremony late yesterday Australian time. Warmest congratulations to everyone involved for this well-deserved and high-profile international acknowledgement of the value of the work by Liza Lim and all program participants to date.

The Awards night was originally intended to be organised as part of the Classical:NEXT 2020 industry event in Rotterdam this week. The COVID-19 pandemic postponed the trade fair by a year.

SOUNDS AUSTRALIA asked Liza Lim and the Composing Women participants to curate a playlist to celebrate their place on the Awards shortlist - Liza Lim was asked to include four tracks of her own works, and the program participants Bree van Reyk, Peggy Polias, Georgia Scott and Josephine Macken each selected four tracks of music that is important to them, also including their own compositions. Go to the SOUNDS AUSTRALIA website to read more about their choices, or go straight to Apple Music, Deezer, Spotify or to hear their selections.
