Lee Westwood made one of Sound & Music’s New Voices

Our member, Lee Westwood has been commissioned through the ‘Portfolio’ scheme to write a new work for London-based choir MusArc, to be premiered this Summer at The Biscuit Factory, Bermondsey. In conjunction with this, Sound and Music have also made him one of their ‘New Voices’ featured composers for the period 2014-2015, and a selection of his works will be published by Composer’s Edition.

Congratulations to Lee
