Adopt a Music Creator opens for applications

Making Music have announced that they are now receiving applications for Adopt A Music Creator.

Deadlines for application submissions are:

  • 30 September 2021 – applications close for music creators
  • 1 October 2021 – applications close for music groups

Adopt a Music Creator pairs amateur choirs, orchestras, and ensembles with a composer for one year. The composer has the opportunity to get to know a performing group and write a piece especially for them to premiere. The group has the chance to contribute to the creation of a new work by some of the UK’s most promising composers. Pieces that are composed are usually around ten minutes long (as a very rough approximation) and are usually written to work around your existing repertoire and schedule.

Adopt a Music Creator is funded by PRS Foundation, the Philip and Dorothy Green Trust and Creative Scotland and run by Making Music, in association with Sound and Music and BBC Radio 3.
