The London Symphony Orchestra (LSO) has unveiled details of two new schemes to give composers the chance to work alongside its players and staff.
Two composers will be accepted onto the LSO Jerwood Composer+ scheme, which will run from September 2017 for up to 16 months.
Applications are welcome from early-career composers of any musical background who would like to gain skills to support their professional development, work with world-class orchestral musicians and contribute to the concert programme for audiences at LSO St Luke’s. Applicants should not be in formal education or training.
Applications are also re-opening for the flagship LSO Soundhub composer programme, thanks to funding from long-time London Symphony Orchestra supporter, Susie Thomson.
Four new members will be offered the opportunity to undertake projects with LSO musicians or independently. Membership is initially for one year from September 2017.
The closing date for applications is midday Friday 28 July 2017.
Composers are welcome to apply for both programmes (if eligible). However, if they are successful they will only be offered a place on one programme (to be decided by the LSO).
Visit the LSO website to submit your application.
