Jenny Jackson premieres in Amsterdam and Huddersfield

Earlier this year Jenny Jackson was one of four composers selected to take part in a new professional development scheme organised by the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival and the Nieuw Ensemble of Amsterdam. The new pieces that have resulted from the collaboration are to receive their premiere performances at St Paul’s Hall, Huddersfield on November 23rd, and there is an opportunity for the public to hear them being rehearsed on the previous evening. However, for Jenny’s piece this will not actually be the world premiere, for the Nieuw Ensemble have singled out her ‘Self Portrait’ for inclusion in their concert at the Amsterdam Muziekgebouw on November 19th.
