Dr Leah Broad, Junior Research Fellow in Music, is currently working on her first book, Quartet, a group biography of four twentieth-century women composers: Ethel Smyth, Rebecca Clarke, Dorothy Howell and Doreen Carwithen. It will be published by Faber & Faber in 2023.

As part of the book launch, Leah is collaborating with The New London Orchestra to present a series of three concerts celebrating the four women composers. The aim of the project is to increase public awareness of these composers and their work, with the hope of increasing performances of their music.

The concerts will take place at London’s Southbank Centre over two days in Spring 2023, coinciding with the release of Leah’s biography. Two of the concerts (Friday and Saturday evening) will be orchestral concerts in the Queen Elizabeth Hall. The third (Saturday afternoon) will be a chamber concert in the Purcell Room. On the Saturday afternoon, Leah and other historians will give talks as part of the Southbank Centre’s series of Study Days.

Further details will be released soon, and more information on Leah's project can be found on her website.
