Update November 13: Good news! Of course there is nothing we can guarantee, but it looks like our concerts in the end of November will go on! More information about the concerts in Arnhem & Apeldoorn.
Congrats Ed Bennett on Psychedelia! We are very happy to be part of your newest release.
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.
Now that the restrictions and measures taken by the government as a result of the worldwide Corona crisis are increasingly intervening, we have had to make a difficult decision. After consultation with the Municipality of Apeldoorn, the organization of Maaiveld has decided to cancel the event - which was planned on 15 and 16 May in and around Apeldoorn's Stationsplein.
We proudly present the participants of the 27th Young Composers Meeting 2021:
Xiaoran Jiang (China), Robert Crehan (UK), Isa Gibbs (UK), Patrick Hegarty (UK), Carol Jones (UK), Aaron Israel Levin (USA), Eden Lonsdale (UK / Germany), Yi-Ting Lu (Taiwan), Livia Malossi (Italy), Daniil Posazhennikov (Russia), Jeremy Rapaport-Stein (USA), Anna Semple (UK), Ho-Chi So (Hong Kong SAR / China), Angela Slater (UK), Hsin-Hua Wang (Taiwan), Leo Lehtinen (Finland).
Congratulations to all! We are looking forward to meeting you & working with you in March!
From January 2021 Aspasia Nasopoulou will take over from Wim Boerman as artistic leader of de ereprijs. We look ahead with her to the period from 2021.
The limitations of the moment will determine the shape of our upcoming concerts, but these rules do not prevent us from looking ahead with enthusiasm and an open mind. We want to strengthen the link between current music and current events in society: to show that new music is needed.
Time to announce the second senior composer for the Young Composers Meeting 2021. Welcome Dyane Donck!
