Middlesex University: Orchestra in Residence

Since 2013 London Firebird Orchestra has been Orchestra in Residence at Middlesex University. The relationship, which is generously supported by the Radcliffe Trust, enables the orchestra to perform in a range of concerts and workshops each year.

There is a large-scale, annual concert at which the orchestra accompanies soloists from the university music department and the university chorus. Compositions by the university’s composers are explored in orchestral workshops and also in smaller, chamber-sized workshops involving players from the orchestra. There is also an annual conducting masterclass given by one of Firebird’s conductors, and chamber ensembles comprising Firebird players perform at university events.
