The Royal Academy of Music (RAM) has announced its autumn season, exploring ‘music and space’ and ‘music of exile’.
As orchestra-in-residence, the Czech Philharmonic will present concerts and masterclasses and work alongside people living with dementia. The residency culminates in a performance with RAM students conducted by Semyon Bychkov.
As part of the academy’s first series of collaborations with the Glenn Gould School, students from both conservatoires are joined by members of the ARC Ensemble to explore the music of five Jewish composers in Music in Exile: Revival and Restoration. The series also features the UK premiere screening of the 2016 film EXIT: MUSIC, directed by James Murdoch.
Spaced, a week-long exploration of music, architecture, space, and movement, will allow audiences to travel through the academy’s spaces via installations and performances by students.
The Royal Academy Opera will perform a new production of Handel’s Semele, while the Academy museum continues its exhibition Hitting the Right Note: Amazing Women of the Academy.
