School of Contemporary Music (SoCM) Festival
The School of Contemporary Music (SoCM) Festival is the graduating showcase for BA(Hons) Music and Diploma in Music students from LASALLE College of the Arts.
In keeping with the musical direction of SoCM, the Diploma in Music programme will feature students performing a mix of contemporary popular music and classical music. In the BA(Hons) Music programmes, the concerts will be made up of mostly original compositions written and arranged by the students in the Jazz, Composition and Popular Music specialisms whilst performers from the Classical stream will be presenting contemporary repertoire primarily drawn from the 20th and 21st Centuries.
