Thanks to funding from the Arts Council of England, Dawber Trust, Firebird Trust, Russel Scanlan Limited and Ernest Cook Foundation, Firebird Trust will be managing a three month composition mentoring programme for four Young Composers (16-21 years old) from across the East Midlands.
Komposit 2018 will take place from January-March. The young composers will have the unique opportunity of being mentored by leading composers in their field Judith Weir (CBE), Annie Whitehead, Chris Woods and Artistic Director of the project Nottinghamshire-based Jo Freya.
The Young Composers will be working alongside an ensemble of five musicians – Cliff Stanton, Nikki-Kate Heyes MBE, Satnam Singh, Colin Reed and David Grey through a series of workshops, culminating in a finished audio recording and public performance.
Tickets are on sale now to watch the final performance of Komposit, which will celebrate and showcase the Young Composers work, performing with the Ensemble and featuring the stories and journeys they have all taken.
