Call for Young Composers!

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.

During this week in Apeldoorn, 16 selected participants will come together. They each write a piece for the orchestra and singers. The week consists of rehearsals, lectures and individual lessons from our senior composers. This year, among others, Martijn Padding, Richard Ayres, Dyane Donck and Tansy Davies are the senior composers. At the end of the week the final concert will take place, in which all pieces will be performed for the public at Gigant in Apeldoorn. Afterwards, a jury of leading composers decides which three talented participants win composition assignments.
