TENSO YOUNG COMPOSERS WORKSHOP

 tycw

We received 48 applications for the Tenso Young Composers Workshop. 
Five young composers will be invited to come to Stockholm. During two sessions, 
they will work on
James Wood
(fragments of) a choral score with the Eric Ericson Kammarkör, composer/conductor James Wood and conductor Fredrik Malmberg. Two or three of the composers will be selected for a follow-up workshop to take place in the spring of 2013, where they will have the opportunity to work in more detail on a new composition for chamber choir.    
A jury consisting of artistic directors and conductors of Tenso choirs will finally award a commission to one composer, who will be asked to write a new work to be performed in the 2013/2014 season by Tenso choirs.

Thursday 11 October 2012   16:00 - 19:00 hrs

Friday 12 October 2012  16:00 - 19:00 hrs

Nordic Music Days is a festival for new Nordic music that was founded in 1888 and had its origins in existing musical collaboration. It is one of the oldest and best respected festivals for contemporary classical music in the world. The festival is unique in the respect that it is arranged by the composers themselves.
