PhD composer chosen for the BBC Symphony Young Composer Scheme
PhD composer Jack White was chosen to participate in an exciting Sound and Music / BBC Symphony Orchestra opportunity for five young composers to collaborate with the orchestra, getting to know the broad range of its work, working closely with its staff and its players and developing skills in writing for orchestra.
During this collaboration Jack will be writing 5 minutes of a 15 minute work for workshop on 18 April 2011 by the orchestra with Garry Walker. Two of the five composers will be then selected to develop their 15 minute piece for further workshop in autumn 2011 and performance at BBC Maida Vale on 17 February 2012 for broadcast as part of Radio 3’s Hear and Now Series.
