Read the Announcement

Tania León said: "I am delighted to have been appointed the London Philharmonic Orchestra's next Composer-in-Residence. Over the two years, I will be able to really get to know the Orchestra and the personalities of each player; to write specifically for this group of talented musicians will be a joy. I am also really looking forward to mentoring the LPO Young Composers and I would strongly encourage anyone thinking about applying to go for it. It is so important that mentoring is available to young artists and I'm so glad I can play a small part in developing the next generation."
