An Exploration of the Cutting Edge of Classical

Black Lives In Music presents: Classically Black

Buy a full Day Pass to ‘Classically Black’, a symposium one-day event exploring the cutting edge of classical music, presented by Black Lives In Music.


Black Lives In Music (BLiM), the organisation set up to address racial inequality in the music industry and create opportunities for Black, Asian and ethnically diverse musicians and professionals, presents Classically Black, a symposium one-day event exploring the cutting edge of classical music.

Produced by BLiM, and sponsored by ABRSM (Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music), this ground-breaking event will explore the experience of being a minority in classical music and champion the works of Black music artists and creators past and present, while asking ‘what is classical now?’

There will be two newly commissioned works by British Black composers Pete Letanka and Jason Yarde, to be performed and recorded by the BBC Symphony Orchestra, plus a late afternoon showcase for emerging talent sponsored by Warner Music Group, networking opportunities, interactive discussions, panels, music workshops, and much more. The evening will host a bespoke show with multi-talented singer/songwriter, cellist, pianist, composer, Ayanna Witter-Johnson.
