Composers - don't forget!

The Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra Australian Composers' School 2008 applications close on Monday 2 June at 5.00pm.

Are you wondering how to move ahead with your career as a composer? If so, this development program is for you.

We need a 5-7 minute orchestra piece, plus application form, available from the TSO website, where you can also listen to snippets of previous composers' works and interviews.

The past two Australian Composers' Schools have asked for applicants in two categories (Emerging and Training) but this year there will be just one category. There were so many high quality pieces submitted that we decided to give a few more composers the opportunity to send new works for full orchestra. This year a maximum of five composers will be selected. The wonderful thing is that there is no age limit, so even geriatrics over 35 can apply! *grin*

The Composers' School is a great experience and a real foot-in-the-door to the Australian orchestral music scene. If you can't attend as a participant, it's well worth coming to Hobart as an observer. So get those black dots going and send in your piece by Monday 2 June!
