Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra has announced a call for orchestral or ensemble scores for its 2019 Composers’ Day.

Composers’ Day 2019 will feature workshops and talks led by composer Sally Beamish.

The ensemble forces consist of 1 violin, 1 cello, 1 flute doubling piccolo, 1 clarinet doubling bass clarinet, 1 percussion player and 1 piano.

A selection of works submitted will be performed on 2 March 2019, with orchestral scores performed by Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and ensemble scores performed by Kokoro, the BSO’s new music ensemble led by Mark Forkgen.

The full schedule for Composers’ Day will be announced in late October 2018. The deadline for submissions is 14 November, with the chosen works announced 14 December. See full details at
