Young Composers Meeting is an intiative by orkest de ereprijs to give young professional composers a chance to compose for an ensemble and develop their talents, knowledge and professional network.
For our anniversary we present a concert series full of current music, the core business of the orkest de ereprijs.
For forty years the orkest de ereprijs has been the ensemble for new music in the east of the Netherlands, making it a unique, demonstrable and recognized place in the world of 'young, composed music'. The orchestra focuses on new work by living composers. Especially for our 40th birthday, a commission composition will be completed by Jan van de Putte, Wilbert Bulsink, Martijn Padding and Kate Moore, who will premiere during this series.
Applications are now closed. All the applicants will receive a personal message about their participation at last mid november. After that, we will publish the participants on our website. Young composers are invited to apply for participation in the Young Composers Meeting 2020 before October 15, 2019. The information about how to apply can be found here: Young Composers Meeting 2020.
