THE SERAPHIN PROJECT
The Seraphin Project was founded by Joy Lisney at King’s College, Cambridge University, in February 2017.
It was born out of a desire to perform the rich vein of repertoire for strings, from Vivaldi and Mozart through to Stravinsky, Britten and beyond, as well as to encourage living composers to write for this ensemble. Seraphin seeks to provide experience for top student players working in a condensed intensive fashion which fits in with their studies, in collaboration with young professionals. The Orchestra also aims to support emerging composers, encouraging them to explore the possibilities of writing for strings and granting them performances of their work in an open-minded culture and by committed players.

As The Seraphin Project's Artist in Residence, I create exhibitions to complement the ensemble's upcoming performances. Each piece of art takes inspiration from its respective concert's main themes. These can be related to Seraphin's performers, the composers, and core motif's within the music itself.
The exhibitions are displayed at concert venues during the evening of the performance. Pieces are available for sale as postcards, prints and originals, both at the event and online.
