COMPOSE!

What is it?

To encourage the creation of new string music and foster the relationship between composer and performer, young artists (aged between 10 - 17 years) are invited to submit their own string and/or piano+string compositions. Depending on durations and difficulty level, one or two compositions will be chosen to be workshopped and performed during the WAYACHAMP Academy Program by students and tutors. 

Program dates:

Spring Academy Compose! Workshop

Wednesday 28th September 2022

Elite workshop 9:30 - 10:30am
