Isla's composition is featured on BBC Proms Website!

Well done to Year 13 student Isla Leach who entered the BBC's 30 Second Composition Challenge to compose a thirty second composition of music. Isla's entry is featured on the BBC website and Proms Facebook page. Isla's composition 'Send to Sleep' was performed by Cellist Beth Porter. Isla said, "Send to Sleep was composed and recorded from my cello connected to a loop pedal whilst also singing throughout. The cello loop is inspired from romantic quartet or string writing from composers such as Schubert. This contrasts with the simple more pop like melody and lyrics about societal pressures and voices in my head."
