Hard Rain SoloistEnsemble: Talent Development Fund 2020

The Hard Rain SoloistEnsemble is the only professional musical group in Northern Ireland to specialise in the performance of modern and contemporary repertoire. Its remit is especially to give a voice to local composers and to perform and workshop music that otherwise cannot be heard live in NI.

The Hard Rain SoloistEnsemble is the only musical group in Northern Ireland to specialise in the performance of modern and contemporary repertoire. The performance of local composers is a central remit and they offer educational workshops/projects to support the development of contemporary music more generally.

2020 – 2021:

To help fund promotion and support for NI composers in their Season through performances, commissioning, workshops, promotion and the development of infrastructure supporting new music.

HRSE intends to support composers of contemporary music in NI at the early stages of their careers. Part of this assistance will involve commissioning. These composers need access to a professional specialist group to build a portfolio of recordings and have their music performed. They also intend to encourage young composers, exploring contemporary music as practitioners for the first time, through read-throughs and workshops. Additionally they will address the problem of the lack of professional performance opportunity that exists regionally for early career and established composers based in NI. They will offer performance platforms to composers of various level of experience.
