Commissioning new work

Serious is dedicated to providing opportunities to talented artists and your support will help us to take a leading role in regularly commissioning new music and facilitating artistic collaborations. This area of work contributes to the development of the art form, through the encouragement of creativity and innovation in music. 

Commission opportunities are not limited to established artists and formal concert settings, but across the scene and in particular, in learning and participation where innovative work is in constant demand to enage and inspire the next generation. 

In 2013 Serious commissioned Brazilian percussionist, Adriano Adewale to create a new show for family audiences – Catapluf was born.  Catapluf premiered at the EFG London Jazz Festival that year and is still toured nationally, enthralling children of all ages and now having reached an audience of over 3000.
