LSO Panufnik Composers Scheme 2018
Over twelve months, successful applicants will have access to tutors including Colin Matthews (composition director), Christian Mason (composition support) and/or other mentors or tutors suited to individual musical styles and needs. The year also includes workshops from LSO players and open access to LSO rehearsals and concerts, enabling each composer to experiment over time and develop orchestral writing skills.
The scheme will culminate with a public workshop (on a date between 20–25 March 2019) during which a three minute work by each composer will be rehearsed by conductor François-Xavier Roth and the London Symphony Orchestra at LSO St Luke’s, London.
Participation begins with a two-day induction on Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 February 2018 at LSO St Luke’s, to include composer introductions, workshops with LSO players and developing public presentation skills. Attendance is essential for selected composers, so please keep these dates free until hearing the results of your application in late January.
Each selected composer will receive a bursary of £1,000, plus travel costs for those living outside London.
