2008 – present (11 years)
London Contemporary Orchestra draws together London’s brightest young talent to explore and promote new music to an increasingly wide audience. Formed in 2008, the LCO has worked alongside a distinguished array of composers and artists, including Jonny Greenwood (on Paul Thomas Anderson’s Academy Award-nominated film The Master), Matmos, Anna Meredith, Biosphere, Ron Arad, Mark-Anthony Turnage, Mira Calix, United Visual Artists and Foals. In 2010 the LCO was recognised by the Royal Philharmonic Society Music Awards for its audience development work. Recent projects include sold-out performances at the Roundhouse and The Old Vic Tunnels, Mike Figgis’s Just Tell The Truth at the Royal Opera House, Latitude Festival and closing last year’s Meltdown Festival at the Southbank Centre. LCO’s performances have been broadcast on BBC Radio 3 and Sky Arts. Edmund Finnis was appointed Composer-in-Association in April 2013.
