CoMA MidWinter Composers Course 2019
Treat yourself this New Year to a gigantic creative boost with CoMA’ intensive mid-winter five-day composition course. With a track record for taking composers onto an entirely new level, the course provides the technical capacity and confidence to realise more ambitious musical ideas and projects. This year’s composition tutor, Alasdair Nicolson, will offer friendly and supportive advice to composers at all stage of their developments, advice that is nevertheless challenging and deeply instructive. With a focus on string writing, composers are required to write for amateur strings as well as for a professional string trio – Tristan Gurney (violin) Ruth Gibson (viola) and Robin Michael (cello). One session each day is dedicated to writing as a composers’ ensemble.
