CANCELLED – WLM Seymour Place performance

Sheldon Square. Paddington Central, W2 6PY
*PERFORMANCE UPDATE* – Unfortunately, due to the adverse weather conditions, this performance has been cancelled. We are sorry for any inconvenience caused.
Since 1998 the Academy has been working to empower homeless and vulnerable adults through music-making. Our musicians work with participants from West London Mission Seymour Place over six months each year in a sustained programme of music-making: a series of informal improvisation, composition and creative workshops with the aim of increasing the self-confidence and musicianship of the adults involved.
Join our group from the WLM Seymour Place on 26 February at the Sheldon Square Amphitheatre for a lunchtime showcase of their recent compositions: Identity, created through an exploration of individual identities, and Sonic 24, which uses the shifting soundscape of London over a 24-hour period – from birdsong, to lorries, cranes, coffee machines, printers, trains, and sirens – to create a musical representation of the city.
