RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra & Contemporary Music Centre announce Composer Lab 2019

Composer Lab is aimed at composers who wish to write for Symphony Orchestra. Now in its fourth year, it is an initiative of the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra in partnership with the Contemporary Music Centre.

Composer Lab is open to composers who have had limited opportunities to write for symphony orchestra/large scale ensemble with or without electronics and aims to provide these composers with a creative and open environment to deepen their experience in writing for symphonic forces.

The initiative has been running since 2016 and has so far enabled 9 composers to work with the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra.

Applications are currently open for the 2019 edition of the scheme and the deadline is 5 October 2018. For further details and to apply, please see our full opportunities listing.
