Young Composers Meeting



About the Young Composers Meeting

Young Composers Meeting is an intiative by Orkest De Ereprijs to give young professional composers under 30 a chance to compose for an ensemble and develop their talents, knowledge and professional network.

During this week, 14 selected participants rehearse the pieces they have submitted. They are accompanied by experienced composers and attend lectures and individual lessons. The intensive week will be concluded with a concert. The most promising participants, in the opinion of an independent jury of leading composers, will be awarded a paid composition commission as an incentive. All compositions are performed by Orkest De Ereprijs and singers from the Royal Conservatory of The Hague, led by Gregory Charette, during the Final Concert on Friday March 3, 2023 in the Gigant theater, Apeldoorn.

The next, 29th edition will be in the week of February 26 until March 3, 2023

Interested? Application for the 29th edition of the Young Composers Meeting 2023 starts on June 1, 2022.
