Composer Errollyn Wallen meets some of the artists working in places of conflict, violence and oppression around the world. She hears their personal testimonies and explores why art and music, poetry and drama can sometimes flourish in times and locations of danger and violence.

What use is art in a warzone, and what can these individuals and their work tell artists in more peaceful places about making art that helps us question and communicate?

ERROLLYN WALLEN IS FRIDAY AFTERNOONS COMPOSER 2018 Errollyn Wallen co-presents In Tune March 8th CONCERTO GROSSO at Teatro Real Madrid with Chineke!
Snape Maltings is delighted to announce that Errollyn Wallen is the composer of 12 new songs for the project in 2018, inspired by her travels around the world.

During her second residency at Snape Maltings in January, the composer worked with young people from the nearby Leiston Primary School, developing her new compositions. On the final day Errollyn and the students visited The Red House, Britten’s home in Aldeburgh, to share snippets of her new works with a small audience.

The new set of songs entitled 'MAP: Songs for Children Everywhere' will be available to download from the Song Bank in April, and will be premiered at the Albermarle Centre, Hull on May 11th. In partnership with Hull Music Hub, the premiere choir will include young people from The City of Hull Junior Choir, Hull Choral Union Junior Chorus and students from Hull Primary and Secondary Schools.
To celebrate International Women's Day Errollyn returns to In Tune to co-present a very special programme highlighting the historical contribution of great women composers. Errollyn Wallen's brilliant CONCERTO GROSSO (commissioned by Orchestra of the Swan and published by Peters Edition) will be performed by Chineke! at Teatro Real in Madrid on April 14th with Errollyn performing the solo piano part. The work also features Chi-chi Nwanoku on double bass and Tai Murray, violin.

The performance will be part of the World Opera Forum
