KX Collective
Young people exploring and creating new music

The KX Collective is a dynamic group of young people from the King's Cross area who have a passion for exploring and creating new music. By working closely with the London Sinfonietta's Principal players, composers and associate artists they produce an annual programme of activity culminating in a spectacular summer performance.

The KX Collective work together as an ensemble and as individuals to develop leadership, critical thinking, self-expression and musicianship across a range of events and projects. They describe themselves as ambitious, honest, creative, friendly and open-minded.


Upcoming dates

Spring workshops took place between Monday 17 - Friday 21 February and culminated in a performance in the Queen Elizabeth Hall at Southbank Centre on Wednesday 12 March.

Summer workshops will take place from Monday 26 - Friday 31 May, with a further performance at Southbank Centre's Nucleo Weekend on Saturday 7 June.

On 5th March 2013, The KX Collective presented an original work as part of the Repeating Patterns: Steve Reich schools matinee concert at London's iconic Southbank Centre.

This was an incredible opportunity to perform music inspired by Reich and minimalism to an audience of over 2,000 people on the main stage of the Royal Festival Hall. You can hear a recording of the original work (entitled ReReich) by clicking on the link on the left hand side of the page.


Collective comments:

“It was amazing and you could feel the vibe in the piece.”

“Overall it was one of the best musical experiences of my life.”

“We liked the idea of creating our own show - even having a say in how the venue would look like on performance day.”

"I've learned that mistakes can sometimes make good music."
