St Magnus International Festival composers’ and conductors’ courses (14-25 June)
Applications for the St Magnus International Festival’s composers’ and conductors’ courses (14-25 June) should be submitted by 17 March.
Running to coincide with the festival, the courses are aimed at start-of-career practitioners or those wishing to develop their work. The composers’ course is led by Alasdair Nicholson with Sally Beamish (and including input from festival founder Sir Peter Maxwell Davies), and the conductors’ course by Martyn Brabbins with Charles Peebles.
Participants in the two courses will work together to produce the Composers' Concert at the festival, while conductors will have the chance to work with both the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and the BBC Singers. Course fee (£690) includes tuition and up to 14 nights’ self-catered accommodation. Full details online.
