The Summers Night Project has been established to support and mentor emerging composers who identify as women to create a composition for performances in Perth, Adelaide and Melbourne, with the aim of growing the gender diversity of composers in music programs Australia-wide.
The three composers chosen from a national call-out were Olivia Davies (WA), Rachel Bruerville (SA) and Carmen Chan Schoenborn (VIC), who have been mentored by lead mentors Rebecca Erin Smith (WA), Becky Llewellyn (SA) and Cat Hope (VIC), as well as had access to new music practitioners.
They have composed works for members of a chamber ensemble including Gabriella Smart (SA) piano, Cat Hope (VIC) flutes, Stuart James (WA) electronics, piano and percussion, Derek Pascoe (SA) saxophone, and Tristen Parr (WA) cello.
The concert features new works by both the three lead mentors and the mentees.
The Summers Night Project is presented by Tura New Music, Soundstream and Monash University in association with project partners APRA AMCOS, the Australian Music Centre and Decibel New Music Ensemble.
