Singapore Chinese Orchestra Composer Workshop 2022

Under the guidance of SCO’s Music Director and Composer-in-Residence, the Singapore Chinese Orchestra (SCO) Composer Workshop offers a stimulating platform for aspiring young composers to gain theoretical and practical experience scoring for the Chinese orchestra.

The workshop begins with seminars on the characteristics and techniques of Chinese musical instruments, as well as composition and orchestration skills. Participants will have the opportunity to consult with the Composer-in-Residence about their drafts. Finally, eight works will be selected to be played by SCO in a reading session.
