The Metropolitan Orchestra’s inaugural Composer Development Program

We’re proud to announce that two Conservatorium High School students , Andrei Hadap  Year 11 and past student Pavle Cajic are among the eight finalists of The Metropolitan Orchestra’s inaugural Composer Development Program.  These eight talented NSW based composers will now enter Stages One and Two of the program where they will work with our Artistic Director and Chief Conductor Sarah-Grace Williams and an ensemble of TMO’s principal players to fine tune their work. Four will then progress to Stage Three where they will workshop their pieces with The Metropolitan Orchestra at The Eugene Goossens Hall, ABC Centre Ultimo on July 22nd.

Join The Orchestra Workshop Session
The final stage will give four composers the rare opportunity to workshop their piece with a full orchestra. The workshop will be recorded and composers will receive a copy of their recorded piece. From this stage, one piece may be selected for inclusion in TMO’s 2017 Concert Season.
The final workshop at Eugene Goossens Hall, ABC Centre will be open for general audience attendance from 10am to 5pm.  Watch the process of creating sensational new music, and be the first to hear these works performed live for the very first time.
