Orchestra Workshop – call for scores

January 12, 2015 in All Opportunities, Composers by newmusicscotland

The Bristol Millennium Orchestra will be spending a 2-hour rehearsal on Monday 13 July 2015 (date tbc – the alternative is 6 July) on 2 or 3 new pieces, playing through with composers present. 

The aim is to give composers an opportunity to hear their orchestral works tried out, and for the orchestra to experience some more new music.  In July 2014 we workshopped two beautiful pieces by Martin Bills and Jonathan Oestlund, and we’ll be giving the first concert performance of Oestlund’s “Ethereal Night’s Ascendance” on Saturday 14 March 2015 at the Cresswell Theatre, Bristol.

Please email scores (ideally Sibelius file and pdf) ideally plus mp3 to John Pitts at bristolcomposers@blueyonder.co.uk with your contact details.  Please also say whether you’d be able to attend.  Composers of selected pieces will be contacted soon after the deadline and will then need to provide a set of parts (at their own cost).  We’ll aim to record the sessions for each composer’s interest.
