Embedded - writing for the BBC Symphony Orchestra

Writing for the BBC Symphony Orchestra:

Call for proposals

As the first opportunity in our new artist development programme, Embedded, Sound and Music is joining forces with the BBC Symphony Orchestra to create an opportunity for composers to work closely with the orchestra, developing their skills in writing for orchestra and for two composers to have new works premiered. Sound and Music announces a call for proposals from composers of up to age 35 at 1 September 2010 and of any nationality living in the UK or British composers living abroad.

This collaboration is a unique opportunity for composers to gain inside knowledge of working with players and conductors. The 12-month process will involve a workshop of initial ideas and sketches, which may be open to the public; a closed workshop on the further developed pieces; a final performance which will be recorded for broadcast on Radio 3’s Hear and Now.

The deadline for this call is Monday 27 September 2010
