Sir James MacMillan joins as New Music Patron

The production and performance of new music has always been a central part of our work and we're thrilled to announce composer Sir James MacMillan as our New Music Patron. We look forward to continuing our collaboration with our Associate Composers and many more young artists in the coming years with James guiding and advising us along the way.

“I’m delighted to be the New Music Patron for SANSARA, one of the most exciting and gifted new choral ensembles to have emerged recently. They have a clear idea that new choral music from living composers can sit alongside older, more well-known music and can speak powerfully to today’s audiences. I wish them well in their endeavours in the years ahead.”
