From contemporary, jazz, classical and popular music to that written
for film, dance and other creative media, spnm is one of the main
advocates of new music in Britain today.
spnm was founded in 1943 and continues to fulfil and build upon
the brief that spurred its existence: to promote and advance the education
of the public by encouraging the understanding, appreciation and development
of music composed by living musicians born or resident in the UK, and
of music generally as expressed in any other medium or form.
spnm achieves this through its eclectic annual programme of concerts,
events, workshops and collaborations and through its monthly publication
new notes. Guest artistic
directors add their own special flavour: Deirdre Gribbin will be our next
Artistic Director for the season 2003/2004.
Through its award-winning work with composers of all ages, spnm
generates an interest in the new. Work is brought to the public ear through
partnership, dialogue and interaction with performers and audiences. Through
this process the mystery which has surrounded the composition of new music
There are no boundaries. spnm will continue to develop this forum
of inspiration and support for audiences, performers, composers and other
creative artists over the next fifty years and beyond.
