Adopt a Composer
The Adopt a Composer scheme is run by Making Music, in association with Sound and Music. This year seven composers have been paired with seven amateur performing groups around the country. The composer gets to work with the group over the course of a year to create a piece of music that is given its premiere performance by the ensemble, and Radio 3 is broadcasting the results.

Tonight you'll hear:
Anna Appleby’s piece, performed by Merchant Sinfonia from Glasgow.
