New Music Plus Scheme
The Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Society is part of New Music Plus… developed by the PRS for Music Foundation in association with the hub, supported by Paul Hamlyn Foundation, Arts Council England and Sound and Music.
The scheme partners music producers with ensembles around the Northwest to cultivate innovative approaches to programming new music. Ensemble 10/10 is working with producer Jonathan Hering throughout 2010.
Hering has been an impetus for a.P.A.t.T.’s concert series, constructing performances of modern music that consider the unique architectural space of each venue. His 30 person orchestra of players from across the Liverpool music scene gave a celebrated performance of Terry Riley’s In C by a 30 person orchestra at the Bluecoat in December 2009, as well as a performance of John Cage’s Variations I at the Walker Art Gallery shortly thereafter. Hering is also a composer, and his works have been performed by members of the RLPO.
