Our programme of events for 2015 includes concerts, educational events and our annual composition competition, the NMSW Young Composers’ Prize. This year we are teaming up with art galleries and media outlets for a series of fantastic events including two “Music and Art” concerts and a major community project on the theme of “Place: Music and Memory“. This will involve a concert featuring music written in response to local landmarks, significant people or historical events and will include the shortlisted works from the NMSW Young Composers’ Prize. A parallel exhibition of memoirs, poetry and art, submitted by the general public, will give the wider community, young and old, the opportunity to share memories about where they live and their hopes for its future.
We will also be holding a series of composition workshops for GCSE and A’Level composers, providing the region’s young musicians with much needed practical experience.
Full details of these events will appear on our Events page as they are confirmed.
