The annual Young Composers Meeting is an initiative of Orkest De Ereprijs. We offer young professional composers the opportunity to compose a piece for the ensemble and thus develop their talents, thereby increasing their knowledge and building a network.
On September 10, 2021, Nieuw Geneco presented the second Fair Practice Award Composition Commission to two winners: Orkest De Ereprijs and patron Marcia (Zembla Music / Support the Composer). Both have been awarded for their unbridled commitment to fair remuneration for composers and for their contribution to sustainability in new music: they ensure that new work remains in the spotlight even after its premiere.
From 1 October Merlijn Runia will dive into the enormous repertoire of De Ereprijs. What is she going to do with that? Experiment, research and play, together with the orchestra and designer Juliette Mout. Everything is allowed and possible!
