We’re pleased to offer a professional development opportunity for three outstanding UK-based early career composers, who will be embedded in our activity across the 2023 season of Britten Sinfonia’s work.
We anticipate that those selected for Magnum Opus may recently have taken part in similar schemes with other ensembles, may have studied composition (or music more generally) in a higher education setting, and will have a pre-existing portfolio of compositions. We are looking to work with those who are keen to develop, not only as composers, but also as well-rounded creatives who will become part of the Britten Sinfonia team for the duration of their residency with us. You should be a talented creative with flair and a good sense of what it takes to make a career in the industry.
Please note that our Opus schemes are not open to composers based outside of the UK. Don’t forget that if you applied for Opus 1 in 2022, you aren’t eligible to apply for Magnum Opus in the same year.
