Congratulations to Visiting Researcher Emily Howard, who was nominated for the British composer award in the Orchestral category for Torus (Concerto for Orchestra), alongside Forest by Tansy Davies and Two Eardley Pictures by Helen Grime.

The 15th British Composer Awards took place on Wednesday 6 December 2017 at the British Museum. The Awards are presented by Basca and sponsored by PRS for Music. A programme dedicated to the Awards was broadcast on Radio 3 on 10 December.

Basca chair Crispin Hunt said: ‘The composers honoured this evening are testament to the UK’s thriving and vibrant new music community. Their creations challenge the status quo; push boundaries, celebrate our rich and diverse history, inspire and innovate at every turn. They demonstrate the positive impact of music on all our lives and it is an honour for Basca to celebrate their achievements this evening.’
