Investing in the training of Australian composers is a staple of the Artist Development program.
Symphony Services International has commissioned more than 170 new works from over 70 Australian composers since 1997.
In addition to this Symphony Services International assists the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra in presenting the Symphony Australia/TSO Composers School. Applications for the 2013 Symphony Australia TSO Composers’ School (October 14-19) are now open. The Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra is calling for 5 – 8 minute orchestral works, scored for double wind orchestra only. The School is a unique opportunity to experience an intense week of compositional training in one of Australia’s most beautiful cities and have your work rehearsed and performed by the TSO and recorded by ABC Classic FM. The 2013 staff includes Ken Young, Maria Grenfell, Andrew Schultz and Paul Stanhope.
The application form is available on our applications page and the TSO web site – http://www.tso.com.au/education/training/
Applications close 5pm on Friday 31 May 2013. Late applications will not be considered.
