Bozzini Lab - Vancouver Workshop 2014 Call For Young Composers

February 17, 2014
British Columbia

DEADLINE: Monday, February 24
SESSION: May 29 - June 6

Acclaimed Montreal string quartet Quatuor Bozzini will give an intensive workshop on composing for strings from May 29th - June 6, 2014, in Vancouver, BC. Hosted by the School for the Contemporary Arts at SFU, the workshop is intended for students who are in undergraduate 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.
