Are you a young composer? Apply for the RSNO's Notes from Scotland mentor scheme!
Entries have opened for the Royal Scottish National Orchestra’s mentor scheme for young composers aged 14-18, Notes From Scotland, beginning in September.
Successful applicants will be chosen as the five young composers to develop their talents under a six-month mentorship with contemporary composers Oliver Searle and Jay Capperauld.
As well as one-to-one tuition with their mentors both in person and online, the successful applicants will have the opportunity to attend RSNO concerts, workshops, and masterclasses.
Due to Covid-19 lockdown restrictions, this year applications are by email only and not by post. Applicants are required to submit a form, available to download from the RSNO website, along with an audio recording of their entry piece and a full score including individual parts. The closing date for applications is 31 May, and further details about Notes from Scotland can be found on the RSNO website.
Now approaching the fifth year, the Notes from Scotland programme will culminate with a performance of five new works of chamber music from the young composers, to be performed by RSNO musicians in February 2021.
