A unique opportunity to observe the creative process in full flow – young composers and performers collaborate on new music, guided by some of the best in the business.

A chance to sit in on one of the Composition and Performance course composer reading sessions, where our instrumental ensemble workshops brand-new pieces written by a cohort of emerging composers. Everything you hear will have been written this week – created and edited by the composers in collaboration with the performers.

Young Artists will work under the guidance of composers Colin Matthews & Mark-Anthony Turnage, soprano Claire Booth, and conductor Jonathan Berman, plus our group of expert instrumental tutors.

More information about the pieces being rehearsed will be available closer to the event.


BPYAP is made possible with the generous support of Trusts & Foundations and individual supporters. The Composition and Performance course is generously supported by The Boltini Trust.
