MODART11 with The Song Company

Emerging young composers with experience in creating music for voices are invited to apply for a place in MODART11, hosted by The Song Company in Sydney in July 2011.

Every two years The Song Company host MODART, an opportunity for young, emerging composers to develop a short vocal work in close collaboration with the ensemble. The Song Company have asked SOUNZ to be involved in the selection process for a New Zealand representative at MODART11. They anticipate a larger international component in 2011 with composers also from Canada, China and Mexico. They envisage that the project will again take place in two stages:? in early February 2011, three or four days of initial workshops in Sydney with the Song Company; and in late July 2011, a final week of rehearsals and public performance recorded by ABC Classic FM. It is envisaged that there will be two public performances, one in Sydney and one in Brisbane.
