Composer in the House: Anna Meredith at Sinfonia ViVA
In January 2010, Anna Meredith became the third RPS/PRSF Composer in the House, when she took up residence with East Midlands based Sinfonia ViVA.
Anna worked closely with Sinfonia ViVA’s artistic team, including Principal Conductor André de Ridder, to gain an insight into the processes and decision-making behind music programming and to develop imaginative ways to engage audiences of all ages in the enjoyment of new music and the creative process.
ViVA’s Nottingham concert on March 16th 2010 featured Anna’s pieces Fringeflower (for strings) and Charged for solo violin (with soloist Tom Gould.)
