#RAMplaysON - Update 2

-Posted on 09.04.2020

The Academy buildings have now been closed for three weeks, and we are all beginning to adjust to a new routine. We understand that now is a very difficult time for students, staff and alumni, with the Coronavirus casting uncertainty on future plans. The Academy seeks to remain a place for music-making, albeit online. For those that wish to share their digital performances with our community please continue to tag us with #RAMplaysON in Facebook, Twitter and Instagram posts.

Australian/British composer Luke Styles spoke to our Artist Development team this week about his working life, digital collaborations and the possible impacts of the Coronavirus on contemporary culture. https://www.ram.ac.uk/about-us/blog/alumni-blog/luke-styles-alumnus-profile
