Alongside the festival, we established Smorgaschord Collective as a way of bringing together a community of like-minded musicians who could take our ideas around to other parts of the country. So far, we've played music by Anna Thorvaldsdottir, Donghoon Shin and Mozart, and are looking forward to touring a programme of Claude Vivier, Elisabeth Lutyens, Xenakis and Janáček as part of the Stoller Hall Emerging Artists scheme.
We think adventurously, and risk-taking is always highly encouraged! We think beyond the limitations and boundaries of the concert hall, and create a spaces that are fluid, open and, ultimately, fun! Audience participation is encouraged, and our events are accessible by all ages and demographics. Ultimately, we want to try to cut away from ‘normal’ formalities of musical experiences, and establish a fresh, energetic environment.
