SFU School For The Contemporary Arts Bozzini Lab Vancouver 2015

January 23, 2015
British Columbia

Deadline: Monday, February 2
Session: May 26 - June 2

The Quatuor Bozzini will give an intensive workshop on composing for strings from May 26th - June 2, 2015, in Vancouver BC. Hosted by the School for the Contemporary Arts at SFU, the workshop is intended for students who are in undergraduate or graduate composition programs, or who have recently graduated.

Besides the quartet, composers Owen Underhill (SFU) and Christopher Butterfield (UVIC) will act as mentors. The goals of the workshop are to improve technical skills for contemporary writing for strings and string quartet, and to provide a supportive environment for visionary compositional ideas.

Those accepted to the workshop will be given composition exercises as a starting point for the week's work, which they will be expected to prepare in advance. Finished works for string quartet are not required by the start of the course. A public presentation will be held at the end of the week to present work done during the workshop.
