NYCGB Young Composers Scheme open for applications
News: 6th August 2020 by Stef Loukes under Music Publishing
The National Youth Choirs of Great Britain have opened their annual Young Composers Scheme, an initiative which identifies and develops 4 talented composers aged 18-29 years, who are passionate about creating high quality, imaginative new music for vocal ensembles. They are looking for emerging composers, from a broad range of musical backgrounds and genres to apply for this exciting, fully funded professional development programme.
Now entering in its third year, the scheme aims to challenge perceptions of, and support the development, innovation and diversity of new choral music. Running over a whole year, it offers a four-phase programme of residential courses, workshops, peer and professional mentoring and performance showcases and outlets. There will be expert advice and tuition from distinguished composers. Professional mentoring will be led by NYCGB Artistic Director and composer Ben Parry, a highly sought-after composer, and previous guest mentors include Errollyn Wallen, John Rutter, Roxanna Panufnik, Richard Allain, Anna Meredith, Alexandra Harwood, Jonathan Dove and Eleanor Alberga.
