ORA Singers' 2023 Young Composers Programme

ORA Singers, artistic director Suzi Digby, has opened applications for its 2023 Young Composers Programme. The programme, the fourth such run by the choir, will see 10 Young Composers each receive 10 hours of one-to-one mentoring from industry-leading composers, who will help them write a brand new choral piece to be performed and recorded by ORA Singers in concert. Halfway through the scheme, Young Composers also get to join ORA Singers for a Workshop, where they'll be able to hear their ideas and sketches sung by professionals, who will offer specialist tips and advice along with a Guest Composer

The programme culminates in a final concert at the Three Choirs Festival in Gloucester where the new pieces will be performed, and Young Composers receive a video recording of the performance to kick-start their portfolios.

As well as the 10 Young Composers, the scheme also includes an additional 40 Apprentices. These will gain first-class coaching in composition through eight online Workshops, free of charge. Apprentices will fast-track their compositional development, and will also gain invaluable insight into the world of professional composition by hearing from experts in the industry. 

The deadline to apply is 6 February 2023, full details at the ORA Singers' website.
