Calling all composers! Calling all writers!

April 7, 2016 in All Opportunities, Composers by mwhiteside

We’re launching a competition to commission three new short operas – to be performed by our youth company, Connect, in celebration of its 10th anniversary in 2018.


Open to those aged 26 and under who are Scottish or based in Scotland, the three winning composer/librettist partnerships will be awarded a cash prize of £3,500, and also receive mentoring support from members of the judging panel throughout the creative process.


Those wishing to enter should submit a one page synopsis outlining the narrative for their work, plus a short biography and their portfolio, with recordings of any previous works for voice they have created.


Entry deadline: Friday 29 July 2016
