September 8 – 15, 2017 г.
(September 6 – 16 2017 for composers)
The Gabrovo Chamber Orchestra invites student composers in high-school and university (bachelor) level to participate with their compositions in the Composers’ Programme to the festival “Days of chamber music”, organized by the Gabrovo Chamber Orchestra.
The Composers’ programme targets student-composers at high-school and university level seeking opportunities to rehearse and hear their music performed by professional musicians, as well as to participate in workshops and lectures in different practical and theoretical disciplines.
The composers will have a work included in the programme of the festival, which will be rehearsed and performed by the Gabrovo Chamber Orchestra. The concert will be recorded and offered to the composers for non-commercial purposes. The work does not have to be written specifically for the festival.
During their work in the workshops the composers will write exercises in orchestration and arrangement, which will be rehearsed with the orchestra. They will participate in a conducting masterclass with the Gabrovo Chamber Orchestra. Some participants will be recommended to the festival performers for future commissions and collaborations.
The composers will benefit from activities outside the studies and the festival, including museum visits, a mountain hike, etc.
Personnel of the Gabrovo Chamber Orchestra:
9 violins, 3 violas, 2 violoncellos и 1 double bass
