Now in our third year of the programme, Emerging Composers offers paid commissions to write for Scotland’s only concert Pipe Band. We are calling for emerging composers aged 18-25 (or up to 30 if you identify as disabled) from both inside and out of the Piping community to create new work for the NYPBS.
We particularly welcome applications from people of colour, disabled people, women and the LBGTQ+ community.
Each composer will receive a bursary of £1,600 and support from NYPBS staff and industry topping mentors.
Applications Close 2nd June. We will write to applicants with the outcome of the selection process by 13th June.
