Where are our music fellows now?
In 2010 Rambert launched its Music Fellowship as part of its commitment to developing future generations of artists.
So far Rambert has invited seven aspiring artists to work with the company. Each fellow spent 12 months engaging with all aspects of the company’s creative work, including writing music for Rambert’s choreographic development programme, arranging and orchestrating music for our national tours, curating concerts and public events with dance at the Rambert studios and much more.
Take a look at what these amazing artists are working on now.
2010: Gavin Higgins
Rambert’s inaugural music fellow Gavin Higgins went on to write two works for the company including the highly acclaimed Dark Arteries. He has been commissioned by many major ensembles and festivals and is currently working on a new opera with children’s writer Francesca Simon.
2011: Mark Bowden
2012: Cheryl Frances-Hoad
Cheryl Frances-Hoad’s collaboration with Rambert culminated in the composition of Quark Dances, which formed part of the show The Strange Charm of Mother Nature. Her latest major work is the WW1-based song cycle Last Man Standing, which will be premiered by BBC Symphony Orchestra this autumn.
2013/14: Kate Whitley
Kate Whitley created the music for Rambert’s Flight, which toured the UK in 2016. Recently, her debut CD ‘I am I say’ was released by NMC Recordings, and this summer Simon Rattle will conduct her new work for the London Symphony Orchestra in their people’s concert at Trafalgar Square.
2016/17: Anna Appleby
