Opportunity: Apply to be Embedded with BCMG

March 31, 2017 in All Opportunities, Composers by mwhiteside

We are partnering with world-leading contemporary ensemble Birmingham Contemporary Music Group to provide an apprentice composer-in-residence opportunity for one lucky artist.

The selected artists will be able to immerse themselves in the group’s activities from September 2017 to summer/autumn 2018, observing and participating in all aspects and developing an insight into a broad range of their work.

The residency will include writing a new work for the ensemble to premiere in 2018 as well as a shorter piece for young performers as part of the group’s Learning and Participation programme.

It is a truly unique residency with professional development at its core. The selected composer will have time to get to know the ensemble and all BCMG activities through visits, shadowing of composers, observing rehearsals and performances, as well as attending workshops and receiving bespoke coaching and mentoring through Sound and Music’s New Voices scheme.
