Seventh London Festival of American Music, 24 Feb to 2 March, London

Seventh London Festival of American Music

Lontano’s Biennial Festival – created in 2006 – explores and celebrates the work of major American composers and reflects the variety of style that is so characteristic of contemporary American music today.

The festival programme was put together by Lontano’s Music Director Odaline de la Martinez, one of Britain’s most dynamic and gifted musicians and the first woman to conduct a complete BBC Prom at the Royal Albert Hall.

This year’s festival celebrates American Diversity featuring not only American Women Composers, but also American Composers of Colour.
