London Contemporary Orchestra

"Under the inspiring Hugh Brunt the London Contemporary Orchestra has become one of Britain's brightest beacons for new music. Its repertoire is adventurous yet it attracts sell-out crowds to extraordinary venues and has a remarkable online following. It nurtures new audiences, forges fruitful alliances across the stylistic spectrum, and champions challenging scores with virtuosic flair."
