Sound and Contemporary Music for All are delighted to announce an exciting new opportunity for Scottish composers. This opportunity will involve writing a new piece for one of sound’s two youth new music groups Get Creative Orchestra or Get Creative Ensemble, with the support of composer Ruta Vitkauskaite
Get Creative is sound’s creative music making programme for young people in North East Scotland aged 8-18 years. Get Creative offers regular creative music-making workshops throughout the year, providing young people with the opportunity to gain musical skills, experience playing in an ensemble, and foster a wider understanding of creative music making with experienced musicians and composers.
Two emerging Scottish composers will be commissioned by sound and CoMA to write a new piece for mixed ensemble – one composer for the Creative Orchestra, and one composer for the Creative Ensemble.
