Call for 31st Young Composers Meeting!

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, as well as expand their knowledge and build a network. You can apply now for the 31st edition!

During this week in Apeldoorn (February 16th - February 21st, 2025), 14 selected participants will come together. In preparation for the Meeting they will each write a three-minute piece for the orchestra, possibly extended with voices from Royal Conservatoire The Hague, coached by Georgi Sztojanov. The week consists of rehearsals of these compositions, readings and individual lessons from our senior composers. This year the senior composers are Richard Ayres, Tansy Davies, Yannis Kyriakides and Wilbert Bulsink. The closing concert, directed by Gregory Charette, will take place at Podium GIGANT, featuring all the pieces. Afterwards, a jury of prominent composers will decide which four talented participants will win the composition commissions.

All information about the YCM 2025 and requirements for participation can be found here. You can apply up until September 13th 2024.

The International Young Composers Meeting is an initiative of Orkest De Ereprijs, supported by Stichting Frank van der Wal Fonds, Royal Conservatoire The Hague, Gemeente Apeldoorn, Podium GIGANT, Gemeente Arnhem, Provincie Gelderland, Fonds Podiumkunsten and our supporters.
