The RGS musical community are very proud of their alumnus, Matthew Kaner, who left in the early 2000s, as he has been showcased by the BBC in their celebrations of Radio 3’s 70 years of existence. As part of the anniversary, the BBC decided to choose a young composer to be their “embedded composer” for 70 days, or 10 weeks, during which time the composer has to write a short piece each week, to be aired on Breakfast on 3 and In Tune, the early morning programme and the drive home programme.

Matthew already has several impressive composing credits to his name, including works written for the London Symphony Orchestra, the Philharmonia Orchestra, and the London Sinfonietta.
