Irish Composition Summer School
This year’s Irish Composition Summer School will offer a range of lectures, presentations and demonstrations on all aspects of contemporary composition, focusing on contemporary writing for any combination of the available forces (trumpet, cello, percussion and piano), with optional electronics.
Throughout the course, students will receive guidance from experienced course directors and nationally and internationally renowned composers. At the end of the course, the students’ works will be presented in workshop, rehearsed and digitally recorded by the performers in residence.
This year, the ICSS is delighted to welcome two Guest Directors, Simon Mawhinney and Ann Cleare, who will present seminars on their own work, as well as giving individual tutorials to all students.
Due to the short duration of the course students are expected to come with some sketches/ideas prepared.
Application deadline is Friday 9th June.
