22 November 2017

PhD composer Jordan Hirst has been chosen as one of six composers taken through to the semi-finals stage of the Royal Northern Sinfonia’s Young Composers’ Competition. The scheme, entitled ‘New Year, New Music’, offers the opportunity for 6 young composers to have their work for chamber orchestra workshopped by the RNS. Following the workshop up to three composers will be selected for inclusion in a professional concert in January, where the audience votes on a winning composition. Jordan’s piece Sparks receives its workshop performance on the 22nd November at Sage Gateshead, we wish him luck.
