MODART13 participants announced
[Update 29 November: the New Zealand participant for MODART13 will be Celeste Oram.]
The list of participants for the MODART13 composer development program is shaping up, with six Australian composers confirmed, along with two participants from Hong Kong and Malaysia.
The Australian participants are Michael Bakrnčev, Adam Cook, Matthew Rankin, Owen Salome, Dylan Sheridan and Marcus Whale. International participants are Daniel Lo from Hong Kong and Yeo Chow from Malaysia, while one further name of a New Zealand-based composer is still to be announced.
MODART is The Song Company's biennial young composer forum, actively supported by the Australian Music Centre and ABC Classic FM. The project gives young composers the opportunity to develop new vocal work in close collaboration with the singers of the ensemble and their director, Roland Peelman.
Dates and venues for the program's workshops and other events in 2013 will be confirmed at a later date.
