Noisy Nights at sound: Call for Scores

Red Note Ensemble's Noisy Nights provide an outlet to hear emerging new musical ideas and voices.

On this occasion we have partnered with Red Note, following the success and learnings from the recent Neurotribes conference, to showcase the talent of neurodiverse composers, supporting greater inclusion in contemporary classical music.

We hope to share the selected works either as a livestreamed broadcast or with a small physically distanced audience at a concert in Aberdeen on Sunday 13 June.
