WildKat PR is delighted to welcome back Music@Malling for the fourth time. Music@Malling brings world-class artists to historic local venues in West Malling, Kent, combining a hugely successful outreach programme with a firm commitment to new music. This year sees the seventh iteration of the festival, in which 24 events will take place over 10 days, featuring music of leading contemporary composers, alongside classical, jazz and folk music. The festival aims to engage with the local community through education and outreach work and to provide events that both enrich and entertain audiences. Music@Malling aspires to develop innovative and creative projects that are of high quality and that raise the profile of music. The artists are involved in mentoring and supporting young musicians and composers across Kent.

Music@Malling

This year, outreach work includes 1400 primary school children from 16 schools partaking in a project focusing on Roald Dahl’s Revolting Rhymes as well as 480 children performing in four concerts alongside the festivals resident ensemble, Chamber Domaine, and narrator Matthew Sharp. Furthermore, in conjunction with Sound and Music, Go compose!, gives 10 young composers from Kent the opportunity to compose a piece of music that is performed and recorded in one day under the expert guidance of Simon Pearce (Royal College of Music and Purcell School) and Chamber Domaine. The festival also offers Meet the Composer events with composers such as Alexander Goehr and Paul Patterson, and mentoring workshops with the Artistic Director of Ronnie Scott’s, James Pearson.

Concerts will include Chamber Domaine performing Vaughan Williams’ Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis and Messiaen’s Quartet for the End of Time. Artists range from harpsichord player Steven Devine, violinist Thomas Bowes to guitarist Craig Ogden performing Bach, Dowland, Britten, and Albeniz. Flute player Sami Junnonen will perform music by Bach, Sciarrino, Debussy, Berio, Takemitsu, as well as the premiere of a new work by Tomi Räisänen.

Thomas Kemp, Artistic Director, says: ‘Our seventh festival promises to be our best yet with a wide range of music and lots of interesting programmes and opportunities for music lovers young and old. Contemporary music by Alexander Goehr and Paul Patterson rubs shoulders with works by Bach, Mozart, Elgar, Vaughan Williams and Gershwin as well as jazz, world, folk and vocal music across 24 events. I am particularly proud of our work with local schools –engaging young people in creative activities – many for the first time.’

Today, March 8, marks International Women’s Day, a globally-recognised chance to celebrate and recognise the challenges and opportunities facing women across the world.

Along with our design partners Sane & Able, we have produced an infographic with stats and facts about the role women play in professional music, and how they are represented across the classical music industry. The theme of ‘space’ was chosen to highlight the light years we need to travel in order to achieve gender parity, as women are still vastly under-represented in the media for their achievements in composing and conducting.

We’ve highlighted that at the current rate, it won’t be until 2186 – 169 years away – that 50% of pieces composed and conducted by women will be the norm at the BBC Proms. Currently, only 4 of the 61 accredited ABO orchestras have women undertaking titled roles. This week we have compiled a Spotify playlist of 169 of our favourite pieces created or performed by women in celebration of the incredible contribution women make to the music industry, including those who have been overlooked by history.

The World Economic Forum’s ‘Global Gender Gap Report 2016‘ provides interesting – and sometimes difficult – reading for anyone interested in finding out the facts and statistics behind women’s role in areas such as education, economics, health and politics. From looking at the data collected it is clear that, like with classical music, we still have a long way to go to ensure that the female half of the population are given the same opportunities as their male equivalents.

It’s not all bad news. Serious efforts are being made to ensure fairer representation for women in the classical music industry. ‘Sound and Music‘ are aiming for a 50/50 split between male and female-identified composers as part of their vision for 2020, which is a short three years away. Later today, BBC Radio 3 are to broadcast a piano sonata by composer Fanny Mendelssohn, which up until recently had been falsely attributed to her brother Felix. Tomorrow, as part of HeForShe Arts Week, ‘Yes She Can’ are providing young women opportunities to network and discover more about careers in music, particularly in roles generally underrepresented by women such as tech and management.

Follow the hashtags #BeBoldForChange and #InternationalWomensDay on Twitter to find out more about how you can get involved in the campaign for gender equality.

As announced yesterday in PR Week, WildKatPR is very happy to welcome our newest client, Sound and Music.

Director Kathleen Alder says: “We are thrilled to be working with such a rich organisation promoting new music, which is something WildKat has always been very passionate about. We think Sound and Music’s work is invaluable to this sector and many composers have benefitted from their programmes and activity in the past and present. We will be working on their UK PR, utilising our in-depth knowledge of the traditional, contemporary and neo classical markets to broaden their reach and engage new audiences in their projects.”

Sound and Music is the dynamic national charity for new music in the UK. Its vision is to create a world where contemporary music and sounds thrive and prosper, by transforming lives, challenging expectations and celebrating creators and artists, whilst raising awareness and focusing on diversity.

Their activity ranges from artist development to network buildingcreative data, education and much more.

Basic RGB

2017 is set to be another exciting and innovative year for Sound and Music. As we continue our aim to challenge and change perceptions of new music, whilst celebrate the breath of work being created and the extraordinary composers and artists living in the UK today – Victoria Johnson, Head of Digital, Marketing and Communications

Spring highlights will include:
Experimental Cut & Splice festival will be brought to Manchester this March for its first visit outside the capital, in partnership with BBC Radio 3 and broadcast on Hear And Now.
Curated by local ensemble Distractfold, C&S will take over Hallé St Peter’s and Hallé St Michael’s in Ancoats, for two days with an exciting and groundbreaking programme of music that explores technology as an unreliable narrator.

Composer-Curator is Sound and Music’s national new music touring programme, which supports entrepreneurial, grassroots composers and artists from a range of disciplines looking to create their own opportunities by producing their own touring work, celebrating and supporting them to hone their curator skills.
Their Next Wave national project will focus, help and support talented students in higher education, who haven’t gone to music colleges and conservatoires yet. It will address the identified gap in support for gifted young composers about to embark on a professional career.
In partnership with NMC Recordings and Sage Gateshead, it is the only programme of its kind in the UK, and will offer winners the opportunity to study in higher education with bespoke support, work collaboratively, and record a dedicated recording with international release on NMC to be launched at a live showcase at Sage in January 2018.

They will also continue to develop The Sampler, an interactive platform for curious listeners and music industry actors and lovers across the UK, bringing together and showcasing new music, event listings, blogs, playlists, podcasts and webinars. Most importantly, this platform is the first of its kind not to categorise events, activity and artists by genres, but by tags, announcing the end of categorisation in new music and giving the power back to its users.
