Who/what is Somextro? Société des musiciens Extraordinaires! We are a community of modern musicians, composers, music professionals. Working towards building a strong network promoting the musicians of today!
The Somextro International Symposium for New Music will be held at Falmouth University inviting UK and International composers and music professionals and organisations to attend and showcase their work through discussions, lectures and performances to create a strong united entity in contemporary music today.
In Cornwall there are concerts put on by high level players on a regular basis, often though this music is not the work by a composer active today, so we decided to take a step further. We are now looking at launching a brand new Somextro link here in Cornwall to increase exposure and develop a strong contemporary music community. We have a selection of professional music professionals booked to deliver a variety of workshops, lectures and performances!
We wish to create an opportunity for new and established composers by promoting the new music of today. Through this project, a stronger music community can be established that not only promotes what is happening in Cornwall musically but also everywhere else.
The Symposium will be taking place on the 28th October 2016 at the Academy for Music and Theatre Arts at Falmouth University.
