LUUMS Composers' Collective 2023/24

LUUMS Composers Collective offers a platform for our members to get their pieces performed in different venues throughout the academic year. In recent years, we have been able to hold events across Leeds in venues such as Hyde Park Book Club and Wharf Chambers. Our weekly sessions give the composers in our society a chance to collaborate with others, share our ideas, and discuss pieces we are passionate about as well as simply offering a place to compose in a social setting. We work closely with members of the wider LUUMS community across the different ensembles as they have such a wide array of fantastic performers who enjoy playing their peers' music. We are proud to welcome a wide range of composition styles including but not exclusive to classical, contemporary rock and pop, film music, electronic and experimental music - and this breadth allows us to appreciate various styles and develop as composers. If you have an interest in making music, come along to one of our sessions on Wednesdays 3-5pm!

Rhys Wilford (he/him)
Manager

Rhys is a 4th year Meng Electronic Engineering student from Sheffield. He has been a keen guitar player since the age of 8 and feels most at home writing and arranging for rock ensembles. He draws inspiration from a wide range of sources and takes every opportunity to discover new music. Rhys has spent the past two years as a departmental member of LUUMS and felt like now it was finally a good time to jump in to contributing towards an ensemble, with Composers Collective being the perfect fit! He is excited to help grow the collective and explore new musical avenues with the group, building on the success of last year’s team.​
