RSNO launches third Composers’ Hub competition2:52, 11th July 2017
The Royal Scottish National Orchestra (RSNO) has launched its third Composers’ Hub competition.
Up to five emerging composers will be chosen to spend the 2017/18 season with the orchestra, each writing a ten-minute work for full symphony orchestra. The scheme will culminate in a public workshop at the RSNO Centre in April 2018, from which one work will be chosen to be performed by the RSNO during its 2018/19 season.
The initiative also provides the composers with opportunities to develop their skills and creative relationships, receive mentoring from Stuart MacRae, work with the RSNO’s Learning and Engagement department, participate in workshops on various aspects of the music industry, and acquire an understanding of the business of a major arts organisation.
Composers must submit a CV, a one-page letter explaining why they are a suitable candidate, and two examples of own compositions (preferably at least one for full orchestra) with scores and sound samples to Joanna Chiang by 5pm on 4 August.
