Call for Proposals

February 2, 2014 in All Opportunities, Composers, Other Opportunity, Performers by mwhiteside

The 2014 programme is almost ready to reveal…in the meantime though, our Composition Competition is now up and running – in collaboration with the wonderful Royal Scottish National Orchestra

As part of the 2014 West End Festival’s Cottier Chamber Project, the Royal Scottish National Orchestra will perform 2 chamber concerts on Sunday 15th June. The second of these, at 8.30pm, will include a performance of Stravinsky’s The Soldier’s Tale, and the première of a new work.

The work should be c.8 minutes long, and should commemorate the 700th anniversary of the Battle of Bannockburn. It may be scored for any combination of:
violin, double bass, clarinet, bassoon, cornet, trombone, percussion and narrator (male voice)

Proposals and abstracts should be submitted by Friday 14th March. A number of works will then be selected for a workshop (held in front of an invited audience) on Monday 24th March, 2014, following which the winning work will be selected for completion and performance on the 15th June.

There is no age or nationality restriction on composers, though it will be an advantage if applicants are able to attend the workshop session.

Proposals and abstract scores should be submitted to:
