Hard Rain SoloistEnsemble - Commission Opportunity
Hard Rain SoloistEnsemble. Who do we want to Commission?
HRSE is offering 3 small commissions, with funds from PRSF’s Talent Development Partnership, to emerging composers from NI. We define emerging composers as composers without a large track record of professional performances of their works and for whom one of these small commissions, and its subsequent performance, would make a difference in terms of kick-starting their careers.
Composers previously commissioned by HRSE are not eligible this year.
Composers may still be studying, though we would normally expect that they would be at least in their 3rd year as undergraduates.
Composers are eligible regardless of age though we remind prospective applicants this initiative is aimed at non-professionals and early career composers.
As this is a PRSF (UK) funded initiative composers in ROI are not eligible.
The commissions are aimed at composers born or domicile in Northern Ireland.
Proof of domicility (utility bill with address) or birth certificate will be required to qualify for the initiative. This will be requested from successful applicants.
HRSE particularly welcomes proposals from women composers.
