Adopt a Composer

The Adopt a Composer scheme pairs member groups with composers for one year, with each pair working collaboratively to create a unique new work.

The next deadline is 5pm on Thursday 8 June 2017.

What is Adopt a Composer?

Adopt a Composer pairs amateur choirs, orchestras, and ensembles with a composer for one year. The composer has the opportunity to get to know a performing group and write a piece especially for them to premiere. 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 usually around ten minutes long (as a very rough approximation) and are usually written to work around your existing repertoire and schedule.

Adopt a Composer is funded by PRS for Music Foundation and the Philip and Dorothy Green Trust and run by Making Music, in association with Sound and Music and BBC Radio 3.

For more information see the Making Music website.
