Orkest De Ereprijs Young Composers Meeting (deadline: 13 September 2024)

Deadline: 13 September 2024 00:00

Young Composers Meeting is an intiative by Orkest De Ereprijs to give young professional composers under 30 a chance to compose for an ensemble and develop their talents, knowledge and professional network.

During this week in Apeldoorn (February 16th - February 21st, 2025), 14 selected participants will come together. In preparation for the Meeting they will each write a three-minute piece for the orchestra, possibly extended with voices from Royal Conservatoire The Hague, coached by Georgi Sztojanov. The week consists of rehearsals of these compositions, readings and individual lessons from our senior composers. This year the senior composers are Richard Ayres, Tansy Davies, Yannis Kyriakides and Wilbert Bulsink. The closing concert, directed by Gregory Charette, will take place at Podium GIGANT, featuring all the pieces. Afterwards, a jury of prominent composers will decide which four talented participants will win the composition commissions.
