CoMA MidWinter Composers Course 2018
Tuesday 02 January 2018 - Saturday 06 January 2018
At St Hilda's College and Jacqueline du Pré Music Centre, Oxford
Treat yourself to a gigantic creative boost with this intensive five-day course with a track record for taking composers onto an entirely new level, giving them the technical capacity and confidence to realise more ambitious musical ideas and projects.
This year’s composer tutor Andrew Toovey offers a friendly and supportive approach that nevertheless is challenging and deeply instructive. With a focus on string writing, composers are required to write for amateur strings as well as a professional string trio including Robin Michael , Ruth Gibson. One session each day is dedicated to writing as a composers’ ensemble.
CoMA composition course participants have variously described the course as providing an ‘amazing time’, offering ‘great feedback’ and ‘unique opportunities for collaboration’, and as an ‘inspiring’ way to kick off the New Year. Past composition tutors have included Tansy Davies, Gerald Barry, Sally Beamish and Philip Cashian and Alasdair Nicholson.
