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 Program by students and tutors.
Compositions will be workshopped during the Autumn and Spring Academies. Composers will be invited to this workshop and their pieces will be played by WAYACHAMP students and tutors. Works should therefore ideally be playable by a grade 7 level musician.
Examples of instrumentation pieces could be written for:
violin + cello
2 violins + cello
2 violins + viola + cello
violin + cello + piano
violin + viola + cello + piano
2 violins + viola + cello + piano
Ages 10 - 17
Applicants do not have to be attending as a WAYACHAMP student.
Apply for Spring Academy by 30 August by filling out the form below.
Upon application, please email a recording of your piece (midi/mp3 ok) to firstname.lastname@example.org
After the closing date applicants will be advised whether their compositions will be chosen.
