One of the most committed of artists to perform at this year’s edition of Sounds From the Other City, Laura Bowler is a multi-disciplinary composer, vocalist and Artistic Director with an intimidatingly extensive list of achievements to her name.
Specialising in theatre and opera, she is currently a professor of composition at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and at the Royal Northern College of Music, and is also the Founder and Artistic Director of Size Zero Opera. She has previously been commissioned by the BBC Symphony Orchestra, London Philharmonic Orchestra, Quatuor Bozzini and Ensemble Linea amongst many, many others, and has also performed internationally as a vocalist.
The creative force behind a series of striking, politically engaged and often confrontational works, she now joins us in the collaboration with the BBC Philharmonic to deliver a new audio-visual piece in the beautiful, atmospheric surroundings of Salford Cathedral.
