Zoë is delighted to announce an award from PRS Foundation Women Make Music Fund to compose a new piece for Héloïse Werner.
In June 2022, the Wigmore Hall will host the album launch concert for Héloïse’s debut solo album ‘Phrases’ on Delphian Records. There is a fantastic lineup of artists contributing to the album including new works from Elaine Mitchener, Nico Muhly, Josephine Stephenson, Oliver Leith and Héloïse herself, and performances from an ensemble of world class musicians – Amy Harman (bassoon), Calum Huggan (percussion), Daniel Shao (flute), Lawrence Power (viola), Laura Snowden (guitar) and Colin Alexander (cello).
Zoë has mentored Héloïse over the past four years and is looking forward to writing a fizzing fun theatrical ensemble number as the finale of this concert, bringing together the brilliant performers involved on the disc. The new work will then be recorded and performed again as part of Héloïse’s album tour.
She gratefully acknowledges the support of PRS Foundation Women Make Music fund for this exciting new commission for a unique ensemble of artists.
