Encountering Wordworth: Opportunity for Young Composers

Encountering Wordsworth

2020 is the 250th anniversary of the birth of  Wordsworth, one of Britain’s most influential Romantic poets who wrote many of his famous poems at Dove Cottage in Grasmere. Building on the success of three previous Young Composer projects we’re marking this date with an exciting collaboration in South Lakeland.
