Sunday 24th Nov 2019, from 2pm – 6pm Piano competition for Junior, Adult Advanced and Adult Learners Categories & 5pm Masterclass presented by Lola Perrin Significantus – a Composer’s Response to Climate Breakdown

Pianist and composer Lola Perrin presents a unique masterclass where she will discuss her Piano Suite IX Significantus, with insights into her thematic inspiration, methodology and the compositional challenges in communicating our existential threat. Extracts from the work will be played by the composer.

More about Lola Perrin

“The single most powerful thing an individual can do about climate change is to talk about it.” (George Marshall) Significantus is a piano and spoken word project created by Lola Perrin. Her latest piano suite, inspired by writings about climate change, is performed in collaboration with expert guest speakers (economists, lawyers, scientists, artists and other thinkers) and also features a conversation with the audience.


“Currently the target set by the Paris Agreement to keep the temperature rise to under two degrees will not be met because the rate at which we are reducing greenhouse gas emissions is too slow.

I created Significantus, a keyboard conversation about climate change, because I want to stimulate more people to talk about how we can increase our ambition to deal with global warming…”
