What does it mean to “make it” as an artist in the 21st century? From 11 to 28 June 2024, the Guildhall School of Music & Drama will be presenting Making It, a new festival celebrating new work created by Guildhall’s eclectic and multi-skilled student community. Events include Guildhall School’s final year actors in Kaleidescope, a celebration of the diverse perspective and boundless creativity, a showcase of work from final year production artists and video designers as they prepare to join the creative industry’s workforce. Guildhall School’s costume artists will showcase specifically designed pieces for the festival in pop-up performances throughout the School.

There will be three new works written by composers and librettists on Guildhall School’s MA in Opera Making & Writing and performed by singers and repetiteurs from Guildhall Opera Course. The Plus-Minus Ensemble will be presenting seven new works by Guildhall composers, whilst the Harp Festival will include an exploration of the early harp and six world premieres. There will also be a showcase for the piccolo.

Issues considered include Diversity in Action: Diversifying production arts staffing in drama schools and conservatoires, and The Creative Practioner: Artists as Makers in Society, plus a Postgraduate research Summer symposium presenting discussion between performers, composers, actors, theatre makers and cross-disciplinary creatives.
