Grammy-nominated Anna Clyne is one of the most sought-after composers of today and we’re delighted to welcome her to the RNCM this January for our In Focus festival. Hailed as a ‘composer of uncommon gifts and unusual methods’ by the New York times, she collaborates across multiple disciplines working with orchestras, choreographers, filmmakers, and visual artists from across the globe.
Her creative projects highlights include The Nico Project at the Manchester International Festival, a stage work about pop icon Nico’s life that featured Clyne’s reimagining of The Marble Index for orchestra and voices performed by RNCM students. She’s also had her works performed and commissioned by some of the world’s leading arts institutions such as the Barbican, Carnegie Hall, Kennedy Center, San Francisco Ballet, and the Sydney Opera House.
This year, she’s the Composer-in-Residence with the Philharmonia Orchestra and the Trondheim Symphony Orchestra, and in the 2023-2024 season, she’ll serve as Composer-in-Residence for the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra.
Join us this January as we celebrate Anna and her incredible catalogue of music.
