For the Pub Tour we’ve worked with three cutting-edge young composers to write short pieces for us, all composed with the pub environment in mind. On Monday and Tuesday of this week you get a chance to hear the first of them, Statice for String Quartet by Kate Whitley.

In this short video she talks about how she got into composing and how she goes about writing a piece from scratch.

Hear Kate’s music as part of the Pub Tour at The Bedford, Balham on 9 September and at The George Tavern, Shadwell, on 9 September.

The commissioning of these three new pieces was made possible by Sound and Music, as part of their Portfolio scheme.
