Kinds of Kings is a collective of US-based composers:
Maria Kaoutzani (Cyprus)
Susanna Hancock (United States)
Gemma Peacocke (New Zealand)
Shelley Washington (United States)
Emma O’Halloran (Ireland)
Finola Merivale (Ireland)
Described by the New Yorker as “distinguished young creators who work in diverse styles”, the collective focuses on amplifying and advocating for under-heard voices and producing immersive and inclusive work.
In the 2018–19 season Kinds of Kings had concert dates with New York-based chamber groups Metropolis Ensemble and Desdemona Ensemble, the ZAFA Collective in Chicago, and the St Louis Symphony as part of the orchestra’s Pulitzer Series. In the 2019–20 season the collective will collaborate with award-winning Australian ensemble Rubiks Collective.
