New Music composed by students, performed by musicians from the Scottish Chamber Orchestra

Developed in collaboration with the University of Edinburgh, this project provides a new and exciting opportunity for emerging composers to write and develop pieces for professional performance. Final year BMus Composition students and SCO musicians work together to explore instrumental techniques, refine ideas and to workshop and rehearse the compositions especially for the ensemble.

In 2018 and 2019, the resulting pieces were showcased at a concert as part of the Edinburgh College of Art Degree Show.

This project is delivered through a partnership between the Scottish Chamber Orchestra and Edinburgh College of Art.

"It matters immensely as it allows the voice of the student to be heard through their hard work. Having the opportunity to hear it live at professional level was something to look forward to"
