SOUNZ NZ composer sessions

Want your music recorded by the NZSO?
Submissions for the NZ Composer Sessions, are open from now until 4 July.

Formerly known as the NZSO-RNZ Concert-SOUNZ Recordings, the sessions offer  NZ composers an opportunity to have their orchestral compositions workshopped and performed by a professional orchestra, to be recorded in a professional setting and promoted to other presenters.

SOUNZ is calling for orchestral scores from SOUNZ composers – maximum two per composer – and from those a selection of works will be chosen by a panel of experts, not more than a total of 60 mins’ duration, ‘that reflect the diversity of musical styles/voices in New Zealand composition’.
