Opportunity: Adopt a Composer scheme now open
Are you a composer ready to be 'adopted'?
The Adopt a Composer scheme - which pairs amateur choirs, orchestras, and ensembles with a composer for one year - is now open for applicants.
Adopt a Composer
Adopt a Composer pairs amateur choirs, orchestras, and ensembles with a composer for one year. The composer has the opportunity to get to know a performing group and write a piece especially for them to premiere. The group has the chance to contribute to the creation of a new work by some of the UK’s most promising composers. Pieces that are composed are usually around ten minutes long (as a very rough approximation) and are usually written to work around your existing repertoire and schedule
'Anna has been a joy to work with. She has been sensitive to the unique nature of the choir and has written a piece that stretches them but also celebrates who they are. She has involved them in the writing from the start and has incorporated their ideas into the final piece. We are very excited about the performance and the prospect of hearing ourselves on national radio.'
