Errolyn Wallen: Becoming a Composer

April 16, 2024 6:30 PM

I am a composer. A composer of classical music. Quite honestly I am not quite sure how that happened to a girl born in Belize and brought up in Tottenham . . . It is clear that composing found me. It crept up on me and wouldn’t let me out of its grasp.

Join us at Fidelio Cafe where multi-award-winning and pioneering composer Errollyn Wallen will treat guests to behind-the-scenes tales from her book Becoming a Composer, in conversation with Faber Publishing Director of Arts and Culture, Hannah Knowles. Errollyn will also treat guests to a performance of some of her work alongside soprano, Ruby Hughes.

Drinks will be available to purchase throughout the event and Fidelio Cafe will be open to patrons of the event to meet and socialise following the talk. The event is held in partnership with Fidelio.

The event format will be as follows:

6.30 p.m. – Guests welcomed to Fidelio.

7–8.15 p.m. – Errollyn Wallen and Hannah Knowles will be in conversation on Errollyn’s book, Becoming a Composer. There will also be two performances: the first a solo piece performed by Errollyn and the second, a performance with Errollyn and Ruby Hughes.

8.15  – Guests are welcome to stay in the cafe for drinks.

10 p.m. – Event ends.
