The Adopt a Composer scheme pairs amateur choirs, orchestras, and ensembles with a composer for one year. It is funded by the PRS for Music Foundation and run by Making Music and Sound and Music
The Adopt a Composer project is a wonderful annual opportunity for an amateur orchestra, choir or band to ‘adopt’ an up-and-coming composer. The composer will work with the performing group over the course of 12 months to produce a new piece of music, culminating in a premiere performance.
Adopt a Composer is run by Making Music in partnership with Sound and Music, in association with BBC Radio 3, and funded by PRS For Music Foundation.
