Since 2000, JAM has performed over 130 pieces of new music including 30 commissions, which have been performed in New Zealand, America, Canada and all over the UK. This commitment to enabling new music remains at the heart of JAM. With a competitive 106 submissions to this year’s anonymous Call for Music, five exceptional pieces were selected for this programme. Christopher Best and Richard Peat have been successful submitters in previous calls whilst William Harmer, Philip Lancaster and Kathryn Rose make their first appearance in JAM. For this concert, they return to three substantial JAM commissions: Paul Mealor’s Now Sleeps the Crimson Petal (2010), Julian Philips’ Body of Water (2012) and Daniel Saleeb’s Soliloquy (2019) which was premiered last year in JAM on the Marsh and receives its first London performance. One of their favourite submissions from last year is Hannah Kendall’s Nativity, which they are pleased to revisit. Check the link below for more details and tickets.
