Anna Meredith is a composer, producer and performer of both acoustic and electronic music. Her sound is often described as ‘maximalist’, ‘uncategorisable’ and ‘genre-hopping’ and straddles the worlds of contemporary classical, avant pop, electronica and experimental rock. Southbank Centre commissioned Anna Meredith and internationally renowned Beatbox Artist Shlomo to write a new piece for Beatboxer and Orchestra in 2010. The Concerto is an acclaimed modern classical work recognising the human voice box as a musical instrument.

Anna Meredith said: “Really excited to be putting together my Beatbox Concerto again and to be included alongside such a great list of other composers.”

This 15-minute piece will be performed twice, with a short Q&A session with the composer between the performances.

MORE TICKETS FOR SOLD OUT PRSF PERFORMANCES WILL BE RELEASED IN MAY 2017.
