Making Music – Adopt a Composer
The Adopt a Composer project matches leisure time choirs, bands, orchestras and ensembles with a composer for a year, leading to a first performance, a recording and a possible broadcast on BBC Radio 3.

The composer has the opportunity to get to know a performing group and write a piece especially for them to première, while the group has the chance to contribute to the creation of a new work by some of the UK’s most promising composers. Pieces that are composed are roughly around ten minutes long and are usually written to work around your existing repertoire and schedule.

Applications for 2019/20 are now open for groups and composers.  

For more information and to apply, please see the Adopt a Composer website.

The closing date for applications is Monday 17th June at 5pm.
