Adopt a composer

June 9, 2016 @ 5:00 pm

The Adopt a Composer scheme pairs amateur choirs, orchestras, and ensembles with a composer for one year. It is funded by the PRS for Music Foundation and the Philip and Dorothy Green Trust, and run by Making Music in association with BBC Radio 3 and Sound and Music.

What is Adopt a Composer?

Adopt a Composer pairs amateur choirs, orchestras, and ensembles with a composer for one year. The composer has the opportunity to get to know a performing group and write a piece especially for them to premiere. The group has the chance to contribute to the creation of a new work by some of the UK’s most promising composers. Pieces that are composed are usually around ten minutes long (as a very rough approximation) and are usually written to work around your existing repertoire and schedule.

Adopt a Composer is funded by PRS for Music Foundation and run by Making Music, in association with Sound and Music and BBC Radio 3.
