MODART13 - first workshops
The first stage of MODART13 composer development program will take place in Annandale, Sydney, on 25-28 February. This is when all nine composer participants will take part in a series of workshops, including some individual sessions with the members of The Song Company, to try out ideas and make adjustments to existing work.
In addition to the singers of The Song Company and Roland Peelman, composer Nicholas Vines will be present as composer-mentor. The nine participants of MODART13 are Michael Bakrnčev, Adam Cook, Matthew Rankin, Owen Salome, Dylan Sheridan and Marcus Whale, all from Australia, as well as Daniel Lo from Hong Kong, Yeo Chow from Malaysia, and Celeste Oram from New Zealand.
MODART is The Song Company's biennial young composer forum, actively supported by the Australian Music Centre and ABC Classic FM. It gives young composers the opportunity to develop new vocal work in close collaboration with the singers of the ensemble and their director, Roland Peelman. MODART13 is the 6th edition of this composer development program, originally initiated by The Song Company and the AMC.
