Woodhouse at 15
The Royal College of Music’s Woodhouse Centre for Professional Development (now the RCM Creative Careers Centre) is celebrating its 15th birthday this year with a unique series of events.
The Centre is recognised internationally as a world-leader in career development for musicians, offering a huge range of services that help budding musicians develop successful careers. These services include managing a range of external performance opportunities, offering advice on professional skills for musicians, and mentoring for innovative artistic projects. All of these services are available to RCM students not only during their period of study but also for five years after they graduate, helping them through that crucial transition period from students to professional musicians.
In 2014, the Woodhouse Centre celebrated fifteen years of success with a programme of fifteen events throughout the year, with five events being announced in each of the spring, summer and autumn terms. The first five events take place at very different venues across London, and celebrate the Woodhouse Centre’s enduring partnerships with some of the capital’s key cultural institutions:
- RCM musicians providing the recorded soundtrack accompanying the British Library’s Georgians Revealed exhibition;
- A Graduate Piano Showcase at The Forge, Camden;
- Sensing Sounds, in collaboration with the Royal Academy of Arts’ Sensing Spaces exhibition;
- A special lunchtime piano concert from Ilya Maximov at St James’s Piccadilly;
- A programme of Shakespeare-inspired music, 'Sounds and Sweet Airs', to complement the V&A’s Shakespeare: Greatest Living Playwright installation.
