Go Compose! 2018

Go Compose! is a 3-day composition course for young composers aged 14-19 who are still in full-time education. You will work with professional composers and musicians to create your own original piece of music for flute, viola and cello which will be performed by Red Note Ensemble at the end of the course. You will also receive a recording of your piece.

The project will be led by Laura Bowler and Edwin Hillier, leading contemporary composers in the UK.

Go Compose takes place between Sunday 14 and Tuesday 16 October 2018 at the Barn, Banchory.

It is a challenge to compose a piece in three days so we expect you to commit to the whole project.

Timetable for the project:

Sun 14 Oct: 2–8pm
Mon 15 Oct: 10am–5pm
Tue 16 Oct: 10am–5pm with a performance at 6pm

What does it cost?
Go Compose! costs £55, this includes £45 for the course and two evening
meals on Sunday and Tuesday which we will provide for you. You will also
need additional spending money for lunches.

If this amount is too expensive for you, please contact us to discuss this. We may be able to help you.

You can invite family and friends to attend the final performance of your pieces. Tickets for the event cost £5.

If you will be travelling from a distance and would like the option to stay
overnight, we are able to organise supervised accommodation for you
costing an additional £40.
