Born in Belize and trained at London's Royal Conservatory, the charismatic composer, pianist and singer Errollyn Wallen will be a featured composer at our next music festival this coming March. Now a beloved personality in English classical music, she garnered the Ivor Novello Award for Classical Music (2013), the FIPA d'Or for best music for a television series (One Night, BBC One), and became an honorary fellow of Mansfield College, Oxford in 2014.

We will be highlighting other programs out of the OM Archives here in the upcoming weeks, focusing on OM Festival alumni taking part in OM 20.
