One of our most enduring and successful programs, the Composition Project provides emerging composers with the opportunity to develop their skills in a professional orchestral environment.
Through a series of individual lessons, workshops and rehearsals, participants write a new work for a 14-piece chamber ensemble, performed by WASO musicians and recorded in front of a live audience. Participants are mentored over a four month period both by the Artistic Director James Ledger and WASO musicians. This project has helped previous participants successfully gain placement in national and international composition programs, post-graduate studies and secure professional commissions and residencies.
