Young people and composition
Get Composing! is a programme of compositional training opportunities for young people aged 13-19 from rural areas, and in particular from North East Scotland. soundbytes gives the opportunity to help with the cost of a young person’s place on Go Compose!, our annual 3-day composition course.

Current commissions (check back regularly for updates):

  • A new work for multiple bassoons by Sonia Allori (commissioned as part of our 'Endangered Instruments' series)
  • A new work by Benedict Mason to be performed by Red Note Ensemble & Pascal Gallois (bassoon)

All of the above new works will be performed at soundfestival 2017.
