TMO 2016 Composer Development Program

BY The Metropolitan Orchestra | 14-Dec-2015
The Metropolitan Orchestra (TMO) present an ambitious program for young NSW composers to workshop pieces with Sarah-Grace Williams and orchestra.
TMO 2016 Composer Development Program
A three-stage project, The Metropolitan Orchestra’s Composer Development Program gives eight NSW composers not yet established in the Australian orchestral scene the rare opportunity to collaborate with a professional conductor to review and prepare their scores prior to a workshop with a small ensemble comprising principal players of TMO. Four composers will be selected to further workshop their piece with full orchestra, receiving a recording of their composition. This unique opportunity allows composers to extensively workshop and develop their composition and overall craft within a professional context. In addition to the invaluable nature of the workshop itself, there is the intention to select one or more pieces for inclusion in The Metropolitan Orchestra’s flagship Met Concert Series in 2017. Furthermore, one composer may receive a commission from TMO to write a new work for the 2018 season.
