Adopt a Composer 2015

Date: 
Deadline: 12 June 2015

1st May 2015 - Applications now closed

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.

Adopt a Composer is funded by PRS for Music Foundation and run by Making Music, in association with Sound and Music and BBC Radio 3.

Please visit the Adopt a Composer Blog and Making Music website to read about previous groups and composers involved, and to apply.
