Occupy the Pianos: Call for Scores!

June 9, 2015 in All Opportunities, Composers by newmusicscotland


Our upcoming 2015/16 season sees the return of Occupy the Pianos, a festival that focuses solely on contemporary and twentieth-century works for piano.

Curated by pianist Rolf Hind, this year’s Occupy the Pianos will include a workshop of unperformed works for 4 hands.

In advance for the workshop, we are currently holding a Call for Scores.
