FLINDERS QUARTET'S 2018 COMPOSER DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM

Following supremely successful composer development projects in 2016 and 2017, Flinders Quartet again invited applications from composers to submit a short work for string quartet to be workshopped by the members of the quartet and composition mentor, Stuart Greenbaum, resulting in a professionally recorded and live-streamed performance in August 2018.

This concert will also be live streamed by our friends at 5stream. You can log on via the FQ websiteFacebook or YouTube.

An important note: Sunday afternoon football will affect traffic and parking in the Docklands area on Sunday 12 August. We strongly recommend using public transport to get to and from the concert! We recommend catching a number 11 or 48 tram down Collins Street and hopping off at the Victoria Harbour stop (which is the last stop).

Supported by Creative Victoria and Australia Council, the workshops are open to the public, allowing aspiring composers to witness the creative process of other composers as well as demonstrating their own compositional development. The workshops will culminate in a produced recording to be broadcast by media partner, 3MBS Fine Music Melbourne, and a public, live-streamed performance of the works with 5stream; thus providing the composers an invaluable reference and promotional tool, and documenting the development of chamber music in Australia.

While the program is open to composers of all ages, a special award will be given to a composer below the age of 30, supported by Scarlet’s Fund, with the recipient to be announced at the August 12th concert. This composer will be invited to undertake a one week residency at artists’ retreat, All That We Are, in Tasmania, with return airfare provided.
