As the Summer begins we celebrate four world premieres on Array’s 2012|13 Young Composers’ Workshop Concert (YCW).

Four participating composers were chosen as part of Array's Call for Applications. They spent the month working intensively with Array's ensemble musicians and workshop leaders Linda Catlin Smith and Henry Kucharzyk, as well as with conductor/Artistic Director Rick Sacks.

This year's YCW composers are:

Sophie Dupuis, currently completing her master’s degree in composition at the University of Toronto, will be undertaking her doctorate at the same institution in September;

Sandro Manzon, a young composer/pianist/improviser currently living in Ontario, embraces a wide range of musical traditions;

André Mestre, a Brazilian composer currently a Master's student at the University of Alberta where he studies with Howard Bashaw, Scott Smallwood and Mark Hannesson;

Janet Sit, in the Master of Music program at the University of Victoria, studies with Christopher Butterfield, John Celona, and Dániel Biró.

The unique combination of piano, cello and double bass has presented one of the most challenging instrumentations in the 26 years of Array's Young Composers' Workshops and we are very excited with the results. Please support Arraymusic and these emerging composers with your attendance. We hope to see you there!
