"It is a great honour to be Patron of this year's International Composers Festival. The artistic director of the Festival, Polo Piatti, has gathered together a wonderful and exciting programme of new music, written by living composers ready to share their melodies with an audience. It's also very pleasing that the Festival is showcasing so many female composers, and we have the opportunity of enjoying their work, many for the very first time, in concert, performed by hugely talented musicians. I'm thrilled that principal conductor John Andrews will be showcasing this new music, and I feel sure that the Festival will grow from strength to strength in future years. Happy music-making!"   Debbie Wiseman OBE
