KENNETH WOODS AND THE ENGLISH SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA PRESENT THE 21ST CENTURY SYMPHONY PROJECT
Nine Symphonies By Nine Composers Launches With February Premiere Of Philip Sawyers’ Third Symphony
Kenneth Woods, Artistic Director of the English Symphony Orchestra (ESO), has made an indelible mark with his bold and boundless innovations. His latest conception is the 21st Century Symphony Project which will commission nine composers to write nine symphonies to be premiered by the ESO. The project will launch with the premiere of the ESO’s John McCabe Composer-in-Association Philip Sawyers’ Symphony No. 3 on 28 February 2017 at St. John’s Smith Square in London.
